The May ASA NEWSLETTER is dedicated to Patient Safety. “It’s all about the patient because we have no other reason to exist” was Dr. Martin’s opening passage, taken from a presentation by ASA President Roger Litwiller, M.D. at the 2004 ASA annual meeting. In his “Administrative Update” on page 6 of the May issue, Arnold Berry, M.D. discusses that “As a responsibility of our profession, physicians are obligated to provide self-regulation to ensure that we continue to meet the expectations… of our patients.” Finally, on page 48, Neal H. Cohen, M.D. discusses the issues from an academic standpoint, referring to the role of academic departments in the education of future anesthesiologists. Educating anesthesiology residents has become more complex.
