AWARD BACKGROUND: SNACC’s mission is to advance the art and science of the neurologically impaired patient, through education, training and research in perioperative neuroscience. Several of the APSF’s patient safety initiatives, championed by Mark Warner, MD, encompass this mission—specifically including perioperative delirium, cognitive dysfunction, and brain health. SNACC’s Annual Meeting allows young scientists to engage and present quality improvement and research projects, many of which exhibit excellence in patient safety.
