This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other healthcare practitioners who must maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of the anesthesia specialty or are impacted by it.
This is a legal risk management course designed to update anesthesia providers and other heatlhcare practitioners on the various legal issues that may be encountered and provide practical information for use in practice. Healthcare and law intersect on many different levels because of the complexity of federal and state regulations and a multitude of state laws regarding malpractice, contracts, and other areas of risk. There are legal implications to almost every aspect of healthcare, and therefore, the importance of a general understanding of the substantial legal risks inherent to practice in healthcare cannot be overemphasized. Courses in Health Law are traditionally absent from training curricula in the healthcare professions. This course will provide a concise overview for anesthesia providers and will be presented by an experienced anesthesia provider who has more than ten years of experience as a practicing New York attorney concentrating in healthcare law.
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.
