Robert K. Stoelting, M.D., has announced that he will retire as president of the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) when his next term concludes on October 22, 2016. During his 19-year tenure as APSF President, Dr. Stoelting has been a vigorous and innovative leader, dedicated to the APSF mission that “no patient shall be harmed by anesthesia.”
Under Dr. Stoelting’s direction, APSF has advanced the scope and impact of anesthesia patient safety by engaging a broad range of safety stakeholders in clinical practice, teaching, research, industry and regulatory affairs. These stakeholders work together to improve patient safety with activities and products, including workshops, consensus conferences, surveys, newsletters, educational videos, advisory statements, training opportunities and research initiatives. APSF provides a vital stimulus for patient safety innovation by funding research awards and providing fellowship grants. The APSF Newsletter, with a worldwide circulation that exceeds 118,000, keeps the anesthesia community attuned to emerging safety concerns and new preventive strategies.
