  • Online Activity
Credits Available: CME, MOCA® II

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

With the creation of APSF, Dr. Pierce set forth a challenging vision – “No patient shall be harmed by anesthesia.”  A decade later in his Rovenstine lecture, he celebrated the robust progress in patient safety while reminding us to remain steadfast to the elimination harm.  This 2018 E. C. Pierce Patient Safety Memorial Lecture will sharpen Dr. Pierce’s vision by looking at the relationship between zero-defects and source inspection.  The lecture will consider novel ways that all members of our community can work together to make Dr. Pierce’s vision a reality.
