Education Committee Update

The SOCCA Education Committee is primarily charged with creating educational content for the Annual SOCCA Meeting. To date, this has been our priority focus and we are working hard to develop a unique and challenging annual meeting for 2019. The Committee is currently made up of four SOCCA members: Sheela Pai Cole (Chair), Peter Von Homeyer (Vice chair), Kunal Karamchandani, and Ashish Khanna.

As many SOCCA members already know, the 2019 meeting will occur on May 17, 2019 just before the IARS meeting in Montreal, Canada. This meeting will feature several speakers and expert panels, tackling diverse topics relevant to Critical Care Anesthesiologists, such as hemodynamic perfusion targets, the benefits and perils of social media in critical care, current utilization and optimization of novel hemodynamic devices, and end-of-life care.

In the near future, we hope to engage our committee member to consider ways to provide additional education content to SOCCA members outside of the Annual Meeting, with a goal to provide several, relevant, continuously-updating, year-round educational offerings on behalf of SOCCA. If you have ideas, thoughts or suggestions to educational content provided to you by SOCCA, please feel free to contact any of the Education Committee leadership, Sheela Pai Cole (Chair) or Peter Von Homeyer (Vice-Chair), or the SOCCA President (Dan Brown) at any time. We sincerely hope you are looking forward to the Annual Meeting as much as we are!
