Anesthesia Symposium to Explore Current Delusions and Misconceptions

Anesthesiologists play an extremely vital role in the surgical process and patient care, as they attend to patients before, during, and after surgery in order to ensure safety and pain relief. Thus, it remains essential for all anesthesiologists to be aware of any misconceptions or developments within the field.

The theme of the 2018 Toronto Anesthesia Symposium is “Current Delusions and Misconceptions”. During this 2-day conference, participants will be provided with insight into the various misconceptions surrounding anesthesia, as well as a discussion of the current state of practice.

The conference will consist of a combination of lectures from field experts, program-based learning sessions, and hands-on skills-based and small group interactive workshops. This combination offers an engaging, active learning experience, through which participants can refine their skills and participate in thought-provoking conversations.

Lecture and workshop topics will include:

  • POCUS in the Obstetric Patient
  • General Anesthesia and Brain Development in Young Children
  • Stop and Think: Peri-operative precautions with the use of opioids
  • Useful Regional Blocks for Ambulatory Anesthesia
  • Anesthesia and Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality

The 2018 Toronto Anesthesia Symposium will take place from April 14-15, 2018 at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto. Anesthesiologists and other interested parties are encouraged to attend.
