North American Partners in Anesthesia's Dr. Dale Anderson Conducts Simulation-Based Training for Physicians and Clinical Staff at East Side Endoscopy

Hands-On Educational Approach Uses Realistic Medical Scenarios to Improve Patient Safety and Outcome

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) - North American Partners in Anesthesia's (NAPA) Managing Partner, Dale Anderson, MD, recently conducted an educational, team-based simulation training session for the physicians and clinical staff at East Side Endoscopy in New York, NY. The hands-on training used high fidelity simulation to practice lifesaving rescue skills related to uncommon but critical clinical events in a risk-free and safe environment. The customized curriculum focused on clinical scenarios that can occur in gastroenterology and ASC settings, including cardiac arrest and airway compromise. Also included in this training was an ACLS rhythm recognition review. In addition to advancing provider skills and knowledge, the continued learning session promoted teamwork through effective communication and overall performance to increase patient safety and provide the highest clinical outcomes.

In 2014, NAPA began serving as the exclusive provider of anesthesiology services at East Side Endoscopy. This relationship has since expanded with the provision of acute and chronic pain management services at the Center.

"NAPA has a long and continued commitment to developing and providing both individual and team-based education and training solutions for all our providers and clinical partners," said Dr. Anderson. "By integrating high fidelity simulation training into our clinical education program, we are able to stress evidence-based principles and practices to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare delivery while optimizing real-world outcomes."

"East Side Endoscopy's mission is to provide high quality services that meet the specific needs of our patients in an environment that is safe, convenient and dedicated to quality," said Brett Bernstein, MD, Medical Director of East Side Endoscopy. "Through our shared focus of quality and patient safety, East Side Endoscopy and NAPA have developed a custom learning program to further this mission and enable our providers to enhance their clinical, communication and collaborative skills -- ultimately, leading to reduced medical errors, maximized effective care and an improved patient experience."
