The Campaign for New Knowledge: Why Discovery Is a Differentiator and Science Is the Surest Way Forward

From political campaigns for tightly-contested Senate seats to advertising campaigns for Black Friday deals, November is awash in campaigns. Because your favorite news publication is already full of politicians and prices vying for your vote, this month we are asking you to support a different kind of campaign: a campaign for new knowledge.
Through this “campaign,” the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research is calling on every ASA member to support the generation and dissemination of new knowledge –the facts, information and skills acquired through scientific discovery – by contributing to FAER.
When it comes to knowledge, physician anesthesiologists are both consumers and producers. We use it every day to treat our patients, to make life-saving decisions in the operating room and ICU, and to recommend new treatments for pain management. Our use of knowledge extends beyond the walls of any medical facility. Knowledge generated via research provides the basis for health care policy, it leads to technological innovation, it drives economic progress and it serves the public good.
