On Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 2:15 p.m. EST, Somnia Anesthesia will host a free webinar, “How the Anesthesia Care Team Model Can Contribute to Clinical Quality Excellence in Your OR,” that highlights the expanding utilization of the blended team care model of MDs and CRNAs. The discussion will address how and why hospitals choose a blended care team model, the potential benefits of doing so and the education, licensing and experience requirements of CRNAs. The featured speakers include a seasoned CRNA who will describe his role in a care team model at a California hospital and a chief of anesthesia who oversees a blended care model at a facility in Washington State.
