Mission of SNACC
The mission of the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care is to advance the art and science of the care of the neurologically impaired patient.

Statement of Need 
The 45th Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Annual Meeting brings a program designed to review and update the educational needs and practice gaps of Anesthesiologists and neurocritical care specialists as well as Neuroscientists that engage in providing care of the neurologically impaired patients especially during the perioperative period. The workshops, seminars, lectures and poster presentations will specifically address new clinical findings essential to improve care of these patients. New monitoring devices, including perioperative use of ultrasound and neuromonitoring devices will be discussed. Also academic educators will have a chance to review novel methods of teaching through simulations. The symposia will address the current innovative ideas on brain and machine interaction as well as new anticoagulation methods during the perioperative period. The basic science of perioperative fluid management will help the participants in choosing correct hydration methods for the specific patient population.

The program is designed to be useful for both the general anesthesiologist who is occasionally facing a neurologically impaired patient as well as regular neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care specialist.

Target Audience
The SNACC 45th Annual Meeting has been designed to meet the educational needs of neurosurgical and critical care anesthesiologists and neuroscientists involved in the care of patients with neurological disorders and is intended for neurosurgical and critical care anesthesiologists, neuroscientists, faculty, residents, fellows and medical students. The Society supports the attendance by members in the educational sessions of the Annual Meeting. The program is generated from member requests and an assessment of need by the program committee.

Attendance at this meeting does not guarantee competency or proficiency in the performance of any procedures which may be discussed or taught during the course.

Educational Format
CME activities may include the following formats: plenary sessions, lectures, moderated poster discussions, oral abstracts and skill set workshops.

Participation in the SNACC 45th Annual Meeting
Attendance shall be open to all health practitioners, provided that they have registered for the meeting. AMA credit will be offered to MDs. DOs need to take their certificate and apply to the AOA as required. A completed Physician Verification of Attendance form must be submitted at the conclusion of the meeting.

ACCME Accreditation and AMA Designation Statement
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care. The American Society of Anesthesiologists is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists designates this live activity for a maximum of 13.25 credits AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The information provided at this CME activity is for continuing education purposes only and is not meant to substitute for the independent medical judgment of a healthcare provider relative to diagnostic and treatment options of a specific patient’s medical condition.

Commercial Support Statement
The CME activity is supported by educational grants. A complete list of supporters will be published on the SNACC website and in the mobile meeting guide.

Disclosure Statement
The American Society of Anesthesiologists remains strongly committed to providing the best available evidence-based clinical information to participants of this educational activity and requires an open disclosure of any potential conflict of interest identified by our faculty members. It is not the intent of the American Society of Anesthesiologists to eliminate all situations of potential conflict of interest, but rather to enable those who are working with the American Society of Anesthesiologists to recognize situations that may be subject to question by others. All disclosed conflicts of interest are reviewed by the educational activity course director/chair to ensure that such situations are properly evaluated and, if necessary, resolved. The American Society of Anesthesiologists educational standards pertaining to conflict of interest are intended to maintain the professional autonomy of the clinical experts inherent in promoting a balanced presentation of science. Through our review process, all American Society of Anesthesiologists CME activities are ensured of independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information. Disclosure of any or no relationships will be made available for all educational activities.

How to Receive Credit
In order to receive credit, participants must sign-in to the ASA Education Center and complete the meeting evaluation. Further instructions will be emailed to each participant immediately prior to and after the activity.
