In this era of rapidly accelerating governmental regulation, effective advocacy of ASA’s core values has ascended to a new level of priority for ASA members. This objective continues to require our carefully coordinated leadership in legislative and regulatory forums across the nation. ASA’s Task Force on State Advocacy is the newest participant in this process. This new task force operates as a strategic component of ASA’s Committee on Governmental Affairs.
Prominently featured on the homepage of ASA’s website is our Society’s most important core value: “Our members are leaders in patient safety…”
To ASA members, patient safety means compassionate application of physician-driven standards of perioperative care, employing expert medical judgment and state-of-the-art clinical science.
