Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 40th Annual Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Meeting taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 14-16, 2015.  We are excited about this historic meeting, as it represents the 40th anniversary of the rebirth of our society in 1975.

Medicine and anesthesiology have undergone dramatic changes in the past several years, both as a function of health care reform and physician led innovation.  It is these changes that have inspired the meeting’s scientific program where cutting-edge knowledge and experience can be shared with world-renowned experts in the field of regional anesthesiology and pain medicine.

We believe that sustained learning is maximized when content is presented in a variety of formats that move beyond the standard didactic lecture.  As such, we have streamlined the meeting to emphasize shorter presentations, experiential learning, simulation, and more attendee participation.  You’ll choose from academic sessions that range from how to prosper in the era of the Affordable Care Act to the introduction of new alternatives for local anesthetics.  Innovative formats include a completely open, audience driven session on the prescription opioid drug crisis. Another will be a first ever session where attendees submit videos addressing strategies for starting a regional anesthesia service.

We are excited to welcome back the highly acclaimed Stanford University simulation group to run critical simulation sessions on management of regional anesthesia emergencies, including local anesthetic toxicity.   If you scan our workshop offerings, you will find world-class international faculty housed in some 31 sessions consisting of 4 comprehensive, 20 ask-the-experts, 5 hands-on, and 2 simulation workshops.

Other meeting highlights include Dr. Zeev Kain who will be speaking on how regional anesthesia and pain medicine fits into the perioperative surgical home model. Drs. Marcel Durieux and Daniel Sessler will be updating the community on cutting-edge research linking certain anesthetic techniques to reductions in cancer recurrence.  Dr. Marc Huntoon from the ASRA journal Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine will moderate a session examining scenarios in which authors conduct themselves in ethically solid fashions; the opposite of the ethical violations addressed in the 2014 meeting in Chicago.

We look forward to welcoming you to the electrifying city of Las Vegas and are confident that this meeting will be a memorable experience for all.

With best wishes,

Brian Sites, MD, Chair, Scientific/Education Planning CommitteeJoseph Neal, MD, President, ASRAJulie Simper, CCMEP, CMP, Director of Continuing Education
