Stanford Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) Course

Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge

A Continuing Medical Education Conference presented by Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning at the Stanford University School of Medicine

Sponsored by the Stanford University School of Medicine

Additional Course Dates:

More 2018 & 2019 dates to be announced.

The Center for Immersive and Simulation-based Learning (CISL) offers a one-day simulation training course in anesthesia crisis management. As one of ASA’s endorsed programs, our course can be used toward Part 4 (Practice Performance Assessment & Improvement) of Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®).

Our course is delivered by leaders in anesthesia and the field of simulation-based training. It offers hands-on practice of current techniques, diagnosis and treatment of difficult anesthesia cases which also covers Crisis Resource Management (CRM) training.

 

Statement of Need

The American Board of Anesthesiology now requires ABA diplomates to accrue a certain number of points over five-year and ten-year periods from activities qualifying for Part IV of MOCA® credit in order to maintain certification.  This course is designed to meet this requirement for anesthesia delivery providers and is delivered by leaders in anesthesia and the field of simulation-based training. The course offers hands-on practice related to current techniques, diagnosis, and treatment of difficult anesthesia cases, as well as teamwork in crises through Crisis Resource Management (CRM) training.

Target Audience

This is an international course intended for anesthesiologists, including CRNAs.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Develop strategies to apply technical skills to appropriately diagnose and treat anesthesia emergencies.
  2. Develop strategies to apply crisis-resource management skills during clinical crises.
  3. Develop strategies to apply reflective and self-assessment skills to review and analyze clinical performance.
