Conference Summary

Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) is organized by Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) and would be held on Dec 09, 2017 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America.

Introduction & Target Audience :
The Vanderbilt Department of Anesthesiology, in partnership with the Center for Experiential Learning and Assessment (CELA) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center offers realistic, immersive patient simulation education. This course is intended for American Board of Anesthesiology Diplomates seeking to fulfill their Practice Performance Assessment and Improvement (PPAI) requirement for the American Board of Anesthesiologists (ABA) Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) Program. This course fulfills the simulation education requirement of Part 4 of MOCA®. The Vanderbilt University Simulation Program has been endorsed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists Simulation Education Network to provide these courses. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 7.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Course Description :
The eight-hour course follows the requirements of the ASA Committee on Simulation Education. Participants will practice individually and in teams to manage a series of simulated events in a variety of patient care settings. Course faculty will include at least two board-certified anesthesiologists experienced in simulation-based training.

Participants will have an orientation to the simulation equipment before providing care to simulated patients. Each participant will take the lead as the primary decision maker on at least one simulated event. Simulations typically include the use of a high-fidelity patient simulator (such as Laerdal SimMan 3G™) as well as simulated clinicians and/or patients (actors with scripted roles) and routine clinical equipment.

Learning Objectives :
After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to:
• Manage a patient undergoing anesthesia who experiences a hemodynamic critical event.
• Manage a patient undergoing anesthesia who experiences a respiratory critical event.
• Describe and discuss optimal teamwork, leadership and communicatin skills required during crisis management.
• Perform an effective handover.

Course Highlights :
• Your performance will not be graded. THIS IS NOT A TEST!
• Experiential learning: You will be in the “hot seat” as the primary anesthesiologist for at least one scenario
• Small course size: 4-6 participants with 2-3 instructors per course

Registration fee: $1,600* (In addition, $100 ASA processing fee will be charged.)

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
