Salishan Resort Oregon Coast

Voted one of the Top 5 Resorts in the Pacific Northwest by Conde Nast Readers Choice Awards in 2018, Salishan Resort Oregon Coast is situated at the heart of the Oregon Coastal Range between forested bluffs and Siletz Bay. Salishan is an easily accessible luxury destination resort just off the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (Route 101) in Gleneden Beach.

This secluded woodsy lodge captures the pioneering spirit and rugged style of the Pacific Northwest. Born from a love of this unspoiled landscape, Salishan invites you to re-calibrate among high-touch hospitality, holistic wellness, coast-to-table dining, and empowering eco-adventures infused with nature. Over the last five decades, Salishan has been remodeled and updated to make it the expansive, luxury and leisure resort destination it is today.

The opportunities for enjoyment are endless at Salishan, whether you enjoy a stroll in the great outdoors, prefer a poolside afternoon, or are looking to keep fit, Salishan offers the best in on-site recreation and leisure activities. The Salishan golf course is as magnificent as it is challenging. Start on the front nine, surrounded by old-growth trees, and play through to the links-style back nine with spectacular pond and bay views. If Tennis is more your game, you can pick up a racquet, play a friendly match, or work with a pro on your game at the Salishan indoor Tennis Center. With three Plexipave courts and state-of-the-art lighting, you’ll have ideal conditions in the indoor tennis facility.

At Salishan Resort, the restorative elements of the Oregon Coast surround you, whether you are watching eagles soar over Siletz Bay from the remodeled outdoor infinity whirlpool or relaxing at the hands of a certified massage therapist in the spa. The full line of salon services and spa treatments, including customizable facials and specialized hand and foot treatments will renew your body and spirit. If you want to get outside, start with a restorative jaunt on miles of forested Gleneden Beach trails winding their way through and around the resort. Beyond Salishan, trace a corner of the Oregon Coast Trail (OCT) along 328 magnificent miles of pieced-together pathways brimming with craggy headlands, crashing waves and magical tide pools. Or trek six miles of off-the-beaten-path strand and rocky promontories on the Lincoln Beach Hike, from the Gleneden Beach Trailhead to Fishing Rock.

Located across from the Salishan Spa, walking distance from the half mile nature trail to the beach, the Shops at Salishan are the perfect place to explore. Enjoy everything from a mouthwatering charcuterie from Mangia Italian Deli to craft beer from the Beachcrest Brewery. Admire beautiful pieces from the Salishan Art Gallery, receive an aromatherapy scalp massage from Gentlemen’s Hair Co., or break a sweat at Fitness 101. The Marketplace offers the perfect variety of shops to make your stay more enjoyable.

When it's time to dine, rest assured that the joy of eating well is something taken seriously at Salishan. Their carefully crafted, organic, coastal-inspired fare and social dining experiences provides options to satisfy every kind of appetite in three unique settings with fantastic views, impeccable service and downright delicious food.

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.
