Falmouth (Cape Cod), Massachusetts

1 2 3 4

Falmouth is a sea-side town of eight unique villages; a historical Cape Cod summer resort destination, and a vibrant, year-round community. You will easily find activities and restaurants to suit every taste, and some of the loveliest scenery in New England.

With 68 stunning miles of Coastline, Falmouth is the perfect place for those who love the sea. Falmouth is well known for its beautiful beaches and the warm waters of Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound; Martha's Vineyard is just a short ferry-ride away.

If you love the outdoors, get ready to enjoy the thrill of swimming, sailing, whale watching, golfing, kayaking, cycling on Falmouth's famous Shining Sea Bikeway or the sweet pull of hookin' a live one in Vineyard Sound. Before or after discovering Falmouth's bounty of boutiques and specialty stores, savor the moment with a relaxing massage in one of the fabulous day spas.

Without leaving town, arts and culture fans will enjoy world class music, art and theatre, fairs and festivals, and the hands-on, marine discovery centers in Woods Hole are not to be missed. A rental car is recommended for this location.

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.

Apply the new techniques in the clinical setting of the participant.
