In 2007, the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) refined the CME requirements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and required that 20 CME hours must be patient safety-focused educational hours. ASA responded to this new requirement and created the Anesthesia Patient Safety Editorial Board (APSEB), charging the board with producing and promoting patient safety material for our members and ABA diplomates. David Martin, M.D., was named editor-in-chief and served in that capacity until last year when he stepped down to meet term limit stipulations within the ASA bylaws and also to assume the role of Section on Education and Research chair. Under Dr. Martin’s leadership, the ASA Education Center currently hosts more than 40 patient safety modules covering a wide range of topics, all of which are conveniently available online and help fulfill patient safety CME requirement for Part 2 of the ABA MOCA®. In 2016, physicians and anesthesiologist assistants claimed more than 16,000 patient safety CME credit hours. The modules are reviewed on a regular cycle, and new material is added annually from a variety of sources.
