The Board of Directors of the Society met during the American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Congress in Boston MA. We have made major advances in both growing the Society and creating new and exciting continuing medical educational opportunities for our membership. The various committees and Task Forces have been working diligently to establish standards and guidelines in Fellowship training, practice management, and use of Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) for advanced cardiovascular monitoring during liver transplantation. In addition, we are working on guidelines for donor management.
Our committee on Meetings (Symposia/Conferences) has been exploring various partnerships to provide both regional, national and international conferences on Transplant Anesthesia and Critical Care. In the coming days and weeks we will be updating the membership on the specifics of these developments.
