Mission of SNACC
The mission of the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care is to advance the art and science of the care of the neurologically impaired patient.
Statement of Need
The 48th Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Annual Meeting brings a program designed to review and update the educational needs and practice gaps of neuroanesthesiologists and neurocritical care specialists who engage in providing care to the neurologically impaired patients / patients at risk of neurologic injury during the perioperative period as well as neuroscientists who research clinical and basic neuroscience. The workshops, seminars, lectures and poster presentations will specifically address new clinical findings essential to improve the care of patients and advance basic and clinical research in neuroscience. Physicians will learn the current standards of the methodology of evaluating the existing clinical evidence/research in neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care and become ready for translation to clinical practice and clinical guidelines. Many clinicians have not been educated on the implementation science. This new science emphasizes how physician adheres to the clinical guidelines to their practice. Physicians will receive the latest discovery on neuroinflammation, technological advancement/new tools used to assess the cerebropathophysiology in the operating room and neurointensive care units. Physicians need to develop consensus on patient safety in complex multilevel spine surgery in geriatric patients.
The program is designed to be useful for both the general anesthesiologist who is occasionally facing a neurologically impaired patient as well as regular neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care specialist.
This activity has been planned and implemented by joint Providership of the American Society for Anesthesiologists and SNACC.
