Crisis Resource Management Training for Anesthesiologists
Meets the MOCA® Part IV Simulation Requirement

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS Cambridge, MA) has just updated the 2012 – 2013 schedule for its one day Anesthesia Crisis Resource Management (ACRM) workshop for practicing anesthesiologists. These workshops meets the MOCA® Part IV simulation requirement and have been approved for continuing education credits by the CRICO/Risk Management foundation of the Harvard Medical Institutions. CRICO/RMF is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. CRICO/RMF designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.This activity is designed to be suitable for 7.5 hours of Risk Management Study in Massachusetts.

CMS’ Anesthesia Crisis Resource Management workshops are designed for those anesthesiologists seeking to practice their skills in managing critical events. The overall focus of these workshops is on learning the type of teamwork and generic skills needed when managing any kind of infrequent but critical event in anesthesia and opportunities will be made available to learn skills in managing certain specific events. During the workshops, participants requiring MOCA® certification will each have a turn as the primary anesthesiologist caring for the patient.

The Center for Medical Simulation is an endorsed program in the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ Simulation Education Network, and has ensured that this workshop complies with the American Board of Anesthesiologists’ Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia MOCA® Part IV simulation requirements. MOCA® is a registered certification mark of The American Board of Anesthesiology, Inc.
