Statement of Educational Need —
Because there are no national standards determining how anesthesia information management systems can and should be used, anesthesiologists must be trained to lead their institutions to use electronic medical records to provide the highest levels of patient safety and effectiveness. Making the Surgical Care Improvement Project measures a critical source for coordinating incentives for anesthesiologists and hospitals. Anesthesiologists do not understand the scope of the quality management tools utilized by the new Anesthesia Quality Institute. The impact of moral and ethical behavior needs to beomce a greater focus of anesthesiology programs. In addition, like most citizens, anesthesiologists do not understand the full impact of the new health reform legislation and its implementation
on patient care and patient safety. New research indicates that current anesthesia practices do not take the impact on peripheral nerves into proper consideration.
Target Audience — This conference is designed for anesthesiologists in Tennessee.
