Brooklyn, New York

From historic urban landscapes to modern cultural experiences, Brooklyn offers a diverse itinerary for every traveler’s preference.

Enjoy a roller coaster ride, a visit to the beach, or a famous Coney dog at Coney Island. Walk or bike over the historic Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn Heights for a stroll along the Promenade and its breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline.

For a taste of culture, explore one of the world’s best Egyptian collections at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Catch an opera, theater production, or concert performance at the world-famous Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Nature lovers must take a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for gorgeous exhibits of roses, orchids, bonsai trees and more. Prospect Park is great for families, and boasts 90 acres of wide, open fields for baseball and soccer, trails for running, bike and horseback riding; summer concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell; an all-season ice skating rink at the LeFrak Center; and several playgrounds. The park also has a small zoo with a duck pond and huge aviary.

While Brooklyn has plenty to do in its own right, the rest of New York City is just a short taxi or subway ride away. First timers won’t want to miss Manhattan’s Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the Bronx Zoo, and the Staten Island Ferry.

TARGET AUDIENCE

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 specialty or are impacted by it.

PROGRAM PURPOSE

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.

OBJECTIVES

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.
