Collaboration sets the tone for the education taskforce. "The ability to partner with anesthesiologists on the front end will lead to lasting changes on the back end," says Kesha Thurston, DNP, CRNA. "It will improve processes for our patients and create a stronger anesthesia team." This group, led by Paul Pienette, M.D. and Thurston, is looking forward to holding joint journal clubs with the teamwork taskforce and integrating CRNAs into the department's Continous Quality Improvement (CQI) conferences. They are also working with the UAB Office of Interprofessional Simulation for Innovative Clinical Practice to begin PIV/arterial line simulation.
