What started with a vision that “no patient shall be harmed by anesthesia” quickly became what is now the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation. Join us for a review of patient safety initiatives and discover the steps necessary to reduce adverse events in the perioperative period. Strategies for closing the gap between the perception of safety and the reality that much remains to be accomplished will also be discussed.
