Vancouver, B.C., Canada
One of Canada’s loveliest cities! Its breathtaking physical beauty makes it a place where often it’s enough just to wander and watch the world go by. You’ll inevitably spend a good deal of time in the downtown area and its Victorian-era equivalent, Gastown, a renovated “Old Towne Vancouver.” Chinatown could easily absorb a morning and contains more than its share of interesting shops, restaurants, and bustling streets. For a taste of the city’s sensual side hit Stanley Park, a huge area of semi-wild parkland and beaches that crowns the tip of the downtown peninsula.
The Inside Passage
Enjoy a leisurely voyage along this beautiful waterway. For a thousand miles, your ship threads its way among emerald islets, past rocky headlands, and over still blue waters. From the moment when the sun rises over the peaks of distant mountains, to the most gorgeous sunsets you’ve ever seen, each day is a new revelation. Naturalists are on board to alert you to the wildlife: eagles on the treetops, bears ambling along the shores, seabirds soaring and shrieking overhead, and whales cavorting alongside.
Icy Strait Point, Alaska
Icy Strait Point is located near the city of Hoonah, the largest native Tlingit Indian settlement in Alaska, and very near Glacier Bay National Park. Home to a historic cannery, the port’s connection to the sea is strong. Locals share the sea with humpback whales, orcas, Dall porpoises, seals, sea otters, halibut and all five species of Pacific salmon. It is not uncommon to spot a humpback or an orca while walking along the shore.
Come face to face with a gigantic wall of ice that fills your view and extends for miles in either direction. Hubbard Glacier is a titan on the move, advancing faster than almost any other glacier on the continent. When it begins to disgorge its ice, by this point 400 years old, into the salt water at Disenchantment Bay, this behemoth is five miles wide and 40 stories high. It dwarfs ships. As you glide along, watch for seals basking on ice floes, listen for the loud, deep rumble and wait for the mighty crack and thunderous crash.
Cruise through Wrangell Narrows and Chatham Strait, past the scenic “ABC” Islands of Admiralty, Baranof, and Chichagof. Watch for bears along the coastline, bald eagles above, and marine life in the surrounding waters. Juneau, home of the famous Mendenhall Glacier and the third largest city in Alaska, touts a blend of gold rush history, nature, and native culture. Mendenhall Glacier is the most accessible glacier in Southeast Alaska. The glacier towers more than 100 feet above the surface of Mendenhall Lake. Tour the Glacier or go by motorcoach and learn about glacial activity at the visitor center. Find the perfect spot for a photo of the massive cliffs of ice. Or choose a helicopter tour and touch down to walk on the surface of the glacier. Visit Juneau’s fine Alaska State Museum, stroll the waterfront, and dine on fresh salmon.
As Alaska’s first city, Ketchikan claims to be the salmon capital of the world. Its harbor shelters a colorful fleet of fishing and pleasure boats. Watch for eagles swooping to snatch a fish for dinner. Ketchikan is also center of the ancient Tlingit culture and proudly displays its heritage. Tour to see Alaska’s largest collection of original totems. Walk through the forest to an authentic Indian community house, with awesome carvings. Go flight seeing to scenic Misty Fjords National Monument with its sheer granite walls, glacier-carved fjords and sky-blue alpine lakes. Go fishing. Shop for gold nugget jewelry or a soapstone carving.

This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other medical care providers who must maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of the anesthesia specialty or are impacted by it.
The practitioner of anesthesiology must possess the scientific background for clinical practice; maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of not only the specialty, but also of all additional related disciplines which may impact it; maintain an up-to-the-minute armamentarium of knowledge and skills for the selection and use of complex equipment, pharmacological agents, and procedures necessary for the provision of quality patient care; manage self and colleagues to function toward common goals in the clinical setting, the clinical and educational institutions, and the community in which the practice resides; serve as an expert in matters involving health care delivery; serve as an informed manager of clinical and educational services provided, including the acquisition and distribution of resources necessary in meeting professional goals; and provide assistance with and support of other service providers, departments, institutions, and organizations dependent upon the professional expertise of the practitioner. Presentations are designed to facilitate the healthcare provider in reviewing, updating, and/or expanding knowledge and abilities in one or more of these areas vital to the practicing professional.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
Apply the pertinent physical and behavioral sciences - to include but not be limited to advanced anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, chemistry, physics, psychology, and social sciences - as they impact and are affected by the planning, delivery, and monitoring of anesthesia and related services inherent in the anesthesia professions.
Explain the selection, dosing considerations with methods of administration, safe use, and contraindications and precautions of presented pharmacological agents through the understanding of their physico-chemical properties, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, updated uses, and more recently developed additional, related, and similar drugs.
Outline comprehensive management plans for the group of patients discussed, whether related in age, physical status, cultural background, invasive procedure, anesthetic or analgesic requirements, clinical setting, adverse reactions, and/or goals of care.
Apply the principles of safety and asepsis in the performance of anesthetic procedures and administrations, equipment use, and other applications encountered during the provision of anesthesia and analgesia whether in the surgical unit, the labor and delivery suite, the pain management clinic, or other more remote location of anesthetizing services.
Incorporate the appropriate recommendations and/or requirements of pertinent external organizations, institutions, and professional groups - recognized as serving as the authority for and/or holding the responsibility to compile and approve such tenets - in the provision of anesthesia and related services, whether medical, legal, philosophical, ethical, or health care management standards.
