The ASRA Pain Medicine CME program provides educational activities to physicians, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, medical students, anesthesia assistants, respiratory therapists, hospital procurement personnel, and operating room managers. ASRA
Pain Medicine supports an interdisciplinary and interprofessional approach to continuing education and patient care by also providing relevant education for other healthcare professionals not directly engaging in interventional regional anesthesia
and/or pain medicine procedures. ASRA Pain Medicine offers learning opportunities to the national and international healthcare community.
This webinar is designed for learners in healthcare wanting to understand the impact of anesthesia on the environment, how regional anesthesia plays an integral role in reducing this impact, the current myths surrounding anesthesia, and environmental sustainability. This symposium is also suitable for those who want to enhance their skills in using sedation to complement the surgical block, minimal flow anesthesia, and ways to set up a business case for environmental sustainability at your workplace.
