Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 41st Annual Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana! Whether you are new to the field or a seasoned expert, in private or academic practice, the content in this meeting will be highly pertinent to your practice. We are proud to have a group of outstanding faculty, who are not only experts in their fields, but also excellent communicators and extremely approachable.

One of our top priorities for this meeting is to enhance the opportunities for debate, discussion, and direct interpersonal interactions with faculty and among conference attendees. To this end, we will be offering a variety of formats that will fit different preferences and learning styles, including formal lectures, interactive panel discussions, pro/con debates, hands-on workshops, high fidelity simulators, small group learning activities, and audience-driven sessions.

A wide scope of clinically-relevant topics will be discussed ranging from cutting-edge nerve block techniques and equipment to new and evolving pharmacologic options for perioperative use, as well as the rapidly evolving field of health care reform and how to optimize quality of care within the new healthcare delivery paradigm.

To celebrate the local heritage, come join us at our special Annual Meeting celebration on Saturday evening and enjoy this city’s world-class music and unique cuisine. We are confident that the outstanding scientific program and the networking opportunities will make this meeting a memorable experience.

Welcome to the meeting and to the exciting city of New Orleans!
