Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia Simulation Session

Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building

Date:
Oct 27, 2018 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. (ET)

Course overview

Simulation education is an innovative training method where physician anesthesiologists problem-solve issues in a setting that closely replicates actual clinical experience during surgery.

This course is designed to recreate realistic and challenging cases, such as insufficient oxygen levels in the blood, difficult airway management, emergency blood pressure issues or cardiac events. To improve clinical practice and patient outcomes, the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia follows the guidelines from the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) and other related associations on patient safety. Using these guidelines, physicians are educated through didactic lectures and advanced simulation scenarios to update advances in pediatric anesthesia and critical care medicine practice and address safety issues identified in the department and Hospital.

This live, instructor-led, advanced simulation course will provide a safe environment to learn about new techniques or drugs and offer participants experience in crisis management, patient safety and professional teamwork that can be difficult to teach in the active operating room arena.

This continuing medical education (CME) live activity has been approved for credit for Part 4: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment of the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) Program. For more information, visit: theaba.org/MOCA

Target audience

This course is intended for anesthesiologists interested in completing the training requirement for Part 4 (Practice Performance Assessment & Improvement) of MOCA.
