  3. Richard A. Beers, M.D. Scientific Programs Chair PGA 67 online registration: www.nyssa-pga.org • Sponsored by: The New York State Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc. 1 Dear Colleagues: For over sixty-six years, the PostGraduate Assembly (PGA) – the annual meeting of The NewYork State Society of Anesthesiologists – has been a focal point for innovation and change in the medical specialty of anesthesiology.The PGA is currently one of the largest annual gatherings for anesthesiologists worldwide, and a premier international meeting, as over thirty percent of attendees travel from outside the United States. We welcome learners to share experiences with fellow practitioners and scientists in the heart of NewYork City. Our objective is to provide an opportunity to interact with other clinicians for the benefit of your patients, your practice, your graduate medical education program and your research. Through your feedback and other sources, we identify knowledge and practice gaps within our specialty and address them through a variety of teaching techniques. We hope you find a teaching method suitable to your learning style, and welcome your suggestions for improvement. Teaching formats include lectures, interactive workshops, mini workshops, problem- based learning discussions, focus sessions and poster presentations. Scientific Panels address knowledge and practice gaps chosen from a broad range of topics relevant to the clinician. The sessions include interactive discussions, during which the panel addresses audience questions and comments. Focus Sessions give in-depth coverage of more specific topics and pro/con debates on controversial issues that are of interest to select audiences. Interactive Hands-on Workshops and Mini Workshops are high intensity, close contact sessions with expert instructors. This is your opportunity to seek out in depth information regarding a clinical competence. Problem-Based Learning Discussions (PBLDs) are small group case discussions with experienced clinicians. The goal of the PBLDs are to explore a specific clinical problem and learn through close interaction between the moderator and the participants. The Resident Research Contest affords young investigators an opportunity to present their work to their peers at a major international forum. Scientific Exhibits, Poster Presentations and Medically Challenging Case Reports allow attendees to discuss the latest scientific progress in the specialty of anesthesiology, and review interesting cases. Technical Exhibits enable attendees to explore available drugs, devices, equipment and services useful for their practice, and obtain further information from a multitude of vendors. HospitalVisits take place on Thursday, one day prior to the start of the PGA. Arrangements are made with NewYork City area hospitals and medical schools to provide attendees with the opportunity to observe the facilities and equipment of major institutions in NewYork City. Social Events give you, and your guests, the chance to cap off intense days of learning, with memorable evenings filled with Broadway shows, the opera and the endless exciting restaurants of NewYork City. The bright lights of Broadway beckon you. Take advantage of everything“the city that never sleeps”has to offer during our 67th annual meeting! David J. Wlody, M.D. General Chair
  4. 2 NYSSA 67th Annual PostGraduate Assembly in Anesthesiology • December 13 – December 17, 2013 • Marriott Marquis, New York • USA Vision:The New York State Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc. (NYSSA) through its Committee on Continuing Medical Education and Remediation (CME&R) is an educational organization that is dedicated to enhancing the standards and practice of the specialty by sponsoring quality, up-to-date and cutting- edge Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities designed to promote education, research and scientific investigations, and promoting quality patient care by improving competence, performance, and patient outcomes, not only within the membership but also nationwide and extending to the international community. In addition, this organization is committed to the remediation of anesthesiologists identified and referred by the New York State Department of Health Office of Professional Medical Conduct. Purpose: The goals and objectives of NYSSA’s CME&R program are to: • Disseminate clinically useful, state-of-the-art, evidence-based, continuing medical education information, as well as basic and clinical scientific research data to clinical practitioners, students, and researchers in the field of anesthesiology, pain management, critical care, and anesthesia practice management. • Encourage and stimulate ongoing and new anesthesia-related research projects that will enhance and advance the specialty. • Remain current in our knowledge of the direction the field of anesthesiology, pain management, critical care, and practice management is following to be able to better develop programs to meet these newly identified needs. • Continually investigate and develop alternative methods to determine the educational needs of the diverse health care professionals serviced by the CME&R NYSSA program. • Comply with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education’s (ACCME) new Updated Accreditation Criteria adopted in September 2006. • Be supportive and institute remediation programs for anesthesiologists in need of remediation by continuing to be the designated Clinical Remediation Organization in Anesthesiology for the New York State Department of Health Office of Professional Medical Conduct. Content: The scope of the NYSSA’s CME&R program is to provide a comprehensive integrated program designed to address the full spectrum of perioperative medicine, anesthetic management, pain management, critical care, and anesthesia practice management both in hospital and non-hospital settings. Diverse educational aspects include, but are not limited to, perioperative evaluation, relief of pain and suffering, support of physiologic homeostasis, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Also included are activities designed to enhance knowledge of the changing healthcare marketplace and economic impact on the specialty of anesthesiology. Activities are also designed to fulfill Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) requirements of practicing anesthesiologists as required by the American Board of Anesthesiology. Target Audience: The educational program is designed to address the continuing medical education needs of health care professionals worldwide who are dedicated to the practice of all aspects of the field of anesthesiology. These programs will specifically meet the needs of anesthesiologists and intensivists in clinical practice and academia, physicians and PhD’s engaged in research, anesthesia residents and fellows, intensive care fellows, medical students, and individuals in the allied health care professions (certified nurse anesthetists, perioperative care nurses, anesthesia assistants, dentists, and respiratory therapists). Types of Activities & Program Modalities: The educational program is accomplished by conducting an annual session of the Post-Graduate Assembly in Anesthesiology (PGA) each year in New York. This meeting is the second largest annual anesthesia meeting in the country. The program utilizes a wide range of educational platforms to meet the needs of its participants and to fulfill the goals of the organization. Modalities include, but are not limited to, large plenary didactic sessions, interactive hands-on workshops, small group problem-based learning discussions, small interactive focused group discussions, simulation modalities as well as scientific free papers and exhibits. The Committee on CME&R of the NYSSA is committed to ensuring the effectiveness of its programs through evaluations, focus groups, feedback and follow-up analysis of impact on learning and professional performance of its attendees. Additional venues and modalities will continuously be explored for their beneficial contribution to the learning process. Expected Program Outcomes: The NYSSA Committee on CME&R expects that its participants will either: Improve their competence by increasing their fund of knowledge and/or skill sets or Improve their performance by applying their newly-acquired knowledge and/or skill sets in order to provide quality and safe patient care. It is the belief of the Committee on CME&R that by improving competence and performance, patient outcomes will be improved. As the ability to measure patient outcomes of our participants become available, the Committee on CME&R will endeavor to utilize them to determine the impact of our CME activities on patient outcomes. Statement of Educational Mission (Last revision approved - February 15, 2013) The PGA insists that balance, independence and objectivity be exercised at all didactic sessions. Therefore, all PGA speaking faculty, as well as, Program Committee organizers have been asked to disclose any potential conflict of interest with respect to their presentation or their program content responsibilities.

Each session can have up to a maximum of twenty (20) participants. These participants meet with a moderator who has authored that particular anesthesia problem. PBLDs allow for an in-depth exploration of the case and simulate problem-solving techniques which anesthesiologists encounter, and employ in their daily practice. The small group format allows for the opportunity for dynamic interaction with peers and the faculty moderator. This non-lecture format, facilitates active learning, and is learner-centered, rather than faculty-centered. PBLDs also promote teamwork in clinical problem solving. A complete PBLD listing will be posted on our website. Since seating at each PBLD is limited, and because of the need to review preparatory literature, you are advised to enroll in advance.
