The Center for Safety, Simulation & Advanced Learning Technologies (CSSALT) has been funded by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) to develop online materials for a new Technology Education Initiative on the APSF website.
The materials, including modeling and screen-based interactive simulation, will be geared toward the entire anesthesiology community. The goal is to complete two online modules, one on low-flow anesthesia and one on quantitative neuromuscular blockade monitoring, by October 2022.
The CSSALT software development team (Dave Lizdas and Travis Johnson) is working on the modules with Jeff Feldman, M.D., professor of anesthesiology and critical care at the University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, as well as a former UF anesthesiology faculty member; Nik Gravenstein, M.D., the Jerome H. Modell, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology; Sem Lampotang, Ph.D., the Joachim S. Gravenstein Professor of Anesthesiology and director for simulation innovation in the Office of Educational Affairs/Office of Medical Education and of CSSALT; and members of the APSF Committee on Technology, including Butch Loeb, M.D., a former professor in the Department of Anesthesiology.
This project is a testament to CSSALT’s expertise and accomplishments in using simulation for a wide variety of medical educational activities, many of which have traveled throughout the world. We are proud of their ongoing commitment to improving patient safety. Congratulations, all!
