The ASA/APSF Ellison C. Pierce, Jr.,Patient Safety Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Alan F. Merry, M.B., Ch.B., FANZCA, FRCA, an internationally renowned anesthesia patient safety advocate and investigator. Dr. Merry has chosen the topic “Toward Patient Safety in Anesthesia – Let the Journey Continue” for his lecture.
This annual honorary lecture was established by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and ASA to recognize and sustain the memory of the founding president of APSF and past president of ASA (1984), Ellison C. (Jeep) Pierce, Jr., M.D. It was Dr. Pierce’s vision and unwavering commitment to anesthesia patient safety that led to the formation of APSF in 1985 as the first medical specialty foundation devoted solely to addressing patient safety. Today, the medical specialty of anesthesiology, ASA and APSF are recognized as pioneers in advocating patient safety as APSF strives to achieve its vision that “no patient shall be harmed by anesthesia.”
