The 2019 ASA/APSF Ellison C. Pierce Jr., Patient Safety Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Jeffrey B. Cooper, Ph.D. Dr. Cooper has chosen the topic “Respectful, Trusting Relationships Are Essential for Patient Safety, Especially the Surgeon-Anesthesiologist Dyad” 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 the founding president of APSF and past ASA president (1984) Ellison C. (Jeep) Pierce Jr., M.D. 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 one shall be harmed by anesthesia care.”
