Needs Assessment and Target Audience
The AANA Professional Development Committee has reviewed program evaluations and other feedback from the AANA membership to identify the issues that affect nurse anesthesia practices. The topics are determined based on overall member surveys, national trends and issues, and gaps in knowledge to further develop the professional practice of CRNAs. The education activities were developed to meet the needs of CRNAs, student registered nurse anesthetists, and other healthcare providers with an interest in the topics.
Expand your knowledge with state-of-the-art educational sessions, including four pre-Congress workshops, a newly expanded Practice Management and Business of Anesthesia Track, six opioid crisis and pain management sessions, and much more!
