Target Audience and Needs

Physicians, residents, fellows, medical students, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and student registered nurse anesthetists at Baylor College of Medicine need to be regularly updated with new advances and guidelines in anesthesiology to increase clinical knowledge, and implement them in clinical practice to improve competence and enhance the quality of patient care and outcomes.

At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Discuss recent advances in surgical technique and critical care management of patients after trauma.
  • Apply point-of-care ultrasound techniques to daily patient care to improve perioperative management of patients.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of alternative medications to use during shortages in order to be able to continue providing quality perioperative care of patients.
