Travel & Leisure Magazine recently named Nashville “America’s Friendliest City” – Come see why! Local museums offer everything from education on the Civil War to county star couture, such as Faith Hill’s dress, to priceless art such as Picasso and Warhol; there’s something for everyone in Music City. Take a tour of a historic home, or take in a comedy while enjoying dinner with your date. Do you like the nightlife? You’ve come to the right place because the “stars” come out at night. Hear blues, rock, country, gospel, jazz, or contemporary Christian. Only in Nashville can you step into a honky tonk on Broadway, look around and see famous faces. Throughout the city, small dives hidden away from the limelight showcase Nashville’s true legends – songwriters.
Every night the music scene in Nashville is vibrant and contagious. Fans rush to get a seat in the clubs while the latecomers crowd the walls and dance floors. By late evening, the clubs are alive and rocking, and there are still many hours left before the clubs close. Let Chopin and Mozart carry you away as you watch the Nashville Ballet or listen to the Grammy-nominated Nashville Symphony. Take in a performance of the Nashville Opera or enjoy an off-Broadway performance at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Beyond the great sounds is shopping. Posh boutiques, guitar stores filled with instruments, chic clothing and fashionable shops – Nashville’s shopping scene covers the gamut in style and appeal.
When hunger strikes, Nashville’s plate has many unique options to tempt your taste buds. Known for “meat and threes” and zesty barbecue, Nashville also specializes in New Southern and Southern fusion, a blend of down-home cooking and uptown dining. Are you asking yourself what makes Nashville family-friendly? Then think no further. Explore the Adventure Science Center, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, Fort Nashborough, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, or Valley Amusement Park. For the sports fan, Nashville boasts three professional sports teams as well as Busch and Indy series car racing. Nashville is surrounded by lush, rolling hills and sparkling blue lakes. Walk 18 holes on Nashville’s five resort courses or eight public golf courses. Ride amusement park rides or slide down Tennessee’s largest waterslides. Rent a jet ski for the day or just cruise upon the world’s largest showboat. When it’s time to unwind, enjoy a day of pampering and relaxation at one of many great day spas.

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.
