Paris, France

1 2 3 4

Whether you're strolling along the Seine or soaking up city life from a sidewalk cafe, you'll see why Paris is synonymous with the word style. From culinary delights to cultural sights, every one of your senses will be tempted. Famed throughout the world for beauty and variety, the monuments, towers, churches, palaces, archways, bridges and fountains will transport you back in time.

A sense of romance along the Pont Neuf, a shiver in the catacombs or an exotic mood at the Mosque: Paris is a mix of atmospheres and cultures. From the must-see to the more unusual, all of these relate two thousand years of the capital's history. An essential part of your stay, a cruise along the Seine is not to be missed! As you glide along the water you'll find yourself face to face with splendid museums. Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Monet, Rodin, Delacroix and Picasso: all these icons of the art world are represented as are antiquities from the four corners of the world.

When people think Paris, they think fashion. Sophisticated or baroque, the window displays of the superb boutiques are a celebration of beauty, a fantasy of fabulous fabrics, delicate scents and sparkling jewels. Located on the outskirts of Paris, theme parks, zoos and a safari park await. You will need at least a full day to appreciate their full worth. Of course, you can't miss the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Versailles and the Louvre, but be sure to spend a quiet moment in the Jardin de Tuileries and savor an éclair from a patisserie or a glass of Beaujolais in a romantic bistro.

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

Provide assistance with and support of other service providers, departments, institutions, and organizations dependent upon the professional expertise of the practitioner

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.
