I have never attended any seminar that has had such a positive dramatic impact on my anesthesia practice. The amount of reference material that is given to each participant surpasses that of any seminar I have attended.
The knowledge acquired in this program (or seminar) is invaluable to everyone’s anesthesia practice no matter what the specialty. Not only will the participant leave with knowledge and ability to increase patient safety and satisfaction, the participant will also gain lifelong tools to improve his or her personal life.
