Educational Information

Physician Practice Gap:

Anesthesiologists may not be aware of recent developments to improve feasibility and rigor of clinical research projects.

Needs that Underlie the Gap

There is a need to provide education to clinicians on how to plan and conduct research associated with the field of cardiovascular anesthesiology as well as to provide clinicians with new approaches, strategies and updated methods to investigate cardiovascular conditions and combine these investigations with their practice.

DESIGNED to Change/Outcome: Following this activity, learners will develop competence by increasing their knowledge through a combination of hands-on learning, case-based presentations, and online lectures. Knowledge will be assessed with a pre-test and post-test.

The physicians in attendance will be able to deliver a higher quality of care in cardiothoracic anesthesiology and clinical research by reviewing evidence-based material that has been identified as a knowledge gap, by attending workshops to improve hands-on research skills (e.g., accessing databases), and to improve health care delivery in perioperative medicine. Teaching modalities will include panel discussions, hands-on workshops, and abstract presentations.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Describe the latest advances in perioperative clinical outcomes research.
  • Identify current trends in clinical and bench research pertinent to cardiovascular medicine and incorporate this knowledge into understanding of the science of cardiothoracic and vascular anesthesia.
  • Discuss research methods.
  • Identify sources of research funding.
  • Acquire skills necessary for career progression in cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesia.

Satisfactory Completion  

Learners must complete an evaluation form to receive a certificate of completion. Partial credit of individual sessions is not available.

Message from the COR-PM Scientific Program Chair

Dear Colleagues,

The Scientific Program Committee is thrilled to announce the second-ever Cardiovascular Outcomes Research in Perioperative Medicine (COR-PM) conference to be held in person and online on Friday, May 5th, 2023 in conjunction with the following SCA 45th Annual Meeting and Workshops in Portland, Oregon.

The COR-PM program was drafted by a group of diverse early- and mid-career anesthesiologists from across the U.S. to
1) Advance our understanding of high-quality clinical outcomes research within the T2-T4 translational spectrum.
2) Provide mentorship capacity for early- and mid-career participants by providing a small-sized conference that permits “face time” with recognized leaders in the field, including Drs. Dan Sessler, Brittney Williams, Anthony Bonavia, Lisa Rong, Kimberly Howard-Quijano, Jochen Steppan and many more.
3) Create a personal, inclusive, and welcoming conference.

We were glad to have seen so many of you in-person and virtually in 2022, we are thrilled to welcome you to Portland in 2023!

Chair, COR-PM 2023 Scientific Program
