Once again in 2014, ASA® had the honor of participating at Europe’s largest anesthesiology-related conference, Euroanaesthesia 2014, which took place in June in Stockholm, Sweden. The European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) shares an agreement with ASA in which the two societies present educational panels at each other’s annual meetings, an arrangement now celebrating its fourth year.
ASA President Jane C.K. Fitch, M.D. introduced this year’s panel, which included Michael F. O’Connor, M.D., Audrée A. Bendo, M.D. and Karen B. Domino, M.D. After Dr. Bendo discussed the evidence that supports avoiding or using medications in specific clinical scenarios, Dr. Domino described ASA’s Closed Claims Database and outlined how it can be used for research to improve patient outcomes. Finally, Dr. O’Connor outlined the social construction of medical accidents using the perspective of human-factors research.
