Webinar Series

The International Anesthesia Research Society webinar series is designed to present high-quality, informative content on current basic and clinical research. The goal is to help advance the anesthesiology specialty through year-round education and to allow attendees to hear from and connect with experts in the anesthesiology field.

These webinars are free to attend. CME is available for IARS members only.

Our live webinars will be recorded, and IARS members have access to the recordings and CME after they occur.

Problem Based Learning Discussion (PBLD) Series

Problem Based Learning Discussions (PBLDs) allow a chance to discuss a focused topic with a content expert in a small group setting. Join a moderator to discuss an issue and how it relates to a real-world case. The moderator will provide background materials to help the participants to compare new information to their existing knowledge and assist with integrating new topics into their thinking.

There are no CME credits provided for PBLDs. The fee to attend is $15.00.

Continuing Medical Education Activity Information

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW
Findings from new research and the evolution of anesthesiology practice based on emerging evidence create an inherent gap between existing practice and new practice models. The purpose of the Webinar series is to provide recent or breaking evidence-based activities to academic anesthesiologists, so they will improve competence and performance in anesthesiology and its subspecialties, resulting in improved patient care and outcomes.

This webinar is part of a series designed to provide new strategies for learners across several specialty-specific clinical areas to access and integrate new information, treatment protocols, and therapies within their scope of practice and apply that information to patient care and staffing management.

This webinar is a live activity using virtual panel discussions with Q&A and interaction from the audience to teach strategies to implement into critical care practice.

TARGET AUDIENCE
The Webinar series is designed to address the continuing medical education needs of anesthesiologists, anesthesiologists-in-training, anesthesia investigators, and allied health professionals who conduct research, practice, or intend to practice in any area of general anesthesia, subspecialty anesthesia, or pain management.

Continuing Medical Education Activity Information

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW
Findings from new research and the evolution of anesthesiology practice based on emerging evidence create an inherent gap between existing practice and new practice models. The purpose of the Webinar series is to provide recent or breaking evidence-based activities to academic anesthesiologists, so they will improve competence and performance in anesthesiology and its subspecialties, resulting in improved patient care and outcomes.

This webinar is part of a series designed to provide new strategies for learners across several specialty-specific clinical areas to access and integrate new information, treatment protocols, and therapies within their scope of practice and apply that information to patient care and staffing management.

This webinar is a live activity using virtual panel discussions with Q&A and interaction from the audience to teach strategies to implement into critical care practice.

TARGET AUDIENCE
The Webinar series is designed to address the continuing medical education needs of anesthesiologists, anesthesiologists-in-training, anesthesia investigators, and allied health professionals who conduct research, practice, or intend to practice in any area of general anesthesia, subspecialty anesthesia, or pain management.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
TBD

Accreditation Statement
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the International Anesthesia Research Society and the Association of University Anesthesiologists.

The International Anesthesia Research Society is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statements
The International Anesthesia Research Society designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit per session. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

CLAIMING CME CREDIT

The IARS will provide online program evaluation and session tracking to support claiming CME credit beginning on Tuesday, April 12, 2022. Live webinar participants will have 60 days to claim CME credit.

MAINTENANCE OF CERTIFICATION IN ANESTHESIOLOGY (MOCA®)
