The 2018 ASA/APSF Ellison C. Pierce, Jr., Patient Safety Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Robert A. Caplan, M.D. Dr. Caplan has chosen the topic “Sharpening the Vision to Do No Harm” 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 Ellison C. (Jeep) Pierce, Jr., M.D., founding president of APSF and past president of ASA (1984). 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 specialty of anesthesiology, ASA and APSF are recognized as pioneers in advocating for patient safety as APSF strives to achieve its vision that “no patient shall be harmed by anesthesia.”
