Patient Safety Booth in ASA Exhibits

“Patient Safety and the APSF on the Internet” will be the theme for the Patient Safety Booth in the exhibit hall at the 1996 ASA Annual Meeting, October 20-22, in New Orleans.

There will be several on-line computers available for demonstrations of the Internet web site of the APSF (http://apsf.med. yale.edu). Also, other electronic media of interest to anesthesiologists, such as the four-journal CD-ROM, will be demonstrated.

Instruction from experienced Internet/electronic media users will be available to anyone who wants to learn how to “surf the net” in using appropriate “search engines” or access any of the other media formats.

In addition, there will be the usual wide selection of educational pamphlets and printed reports. Similarly, there will be again an opportunity to view recent ASA safety videotapes with an enlarged and improved viewing area.

The Patient Safety Booth is a joint project of the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation and the ASA Committee on Patient Safety, Risk Management and Epidemiology. Visitors to the booth will be able to meet with members of both groups to discuss any issues of interest.
