Event Overview
Welcome message:
UCLA 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 IV (Practice Performance Assessment & Improvement) of Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®). Participation in simulation at an ASA-endorsed center is encouraged for all diplomates, however as of April 23, 2015, ABA announced MOCA 2.0 with changes in what is required for recertification. The ASA has issued a clarification to help diplomates determine if simulation is a requirement or an option:

Provide management of hemodynamic and respiratory critical events in anesthesia.

Practice up-to-date techniques in a safe learning environment.

Reflect on optimal teamwork, leadership and communication skills required in crisis management.

"Simulation-based learning embeds the lessons of the experience deeply into the participant without risk to patients."

Randolph Steadman, M.D., Director, UCLA Simulation Center

Course Highlights

Your performance will not be graded. THIS IS NOT A TEST!

Experiential learning: You will be in the “hot seat” as the primary anesthesiologist for at least one scenario, and observe or help out in other scenarios

Small course size: No more than 5 participants per 1 faculty instructor per course

Enrolled participants will experience or observe various clinical scenarios carefully selected to represent common and infrequent critical events in anesthesia practice. Each participant will play the role of the primary anesthesiologist for at least one scenario and observe or serve as a secondary responder for the other scenarios. Each scenario is followed by a group debriefing. Participants will refresh their skills in managing critical incidents, team interactions and resource utilization.
