Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In February of 2022 we decided on the following six strategic goals which have been affirmed in our refresh. The APSF has a board meeting in February and September of each year at which our strategic plan is reviewed.

1. Continue to support our strengths in regard to research, education, collaboration, and communication (Newsletter, social media, website).
2. Two-way communication with patients.
3. Enhancing implementation of emerging technology.
4. Engagement and outreach to trainees and early career anesthesia providers.
5. Enhance collaborations.
6. International engagement.

1. Continue to support our strengths regarding research, education, collaboration, and communication (Newsletter, social media, website).
Newsletter read by over 650,000 people in every nation in the world.
Website-accessed by both US and International people each year.
US pageviews: 510,103
International pageviews: 527,725
Social media- All APSF platforms continue to grow in total followers, especially our newer platforms of
Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. Health and Wellness industry has been seeing a drop in audience growth of
about 20%. APSF, however, has had an increase in growth of about 11% during the same time period.
Research-continued support of three (3) grants each year.
Education-a consensus conference every September (non-operating room anesthesia in 2022, emerging
technology in 2023). A special consensus conference in November of 2022. Each of our conferences has a
summary manuscript published in a peer-reviewed journal. Educational activities developed on low-flow
anesthesia and neuromuscular monitoring that are posted online.
Collaborations continue with ASA, AANA and AAAA.

2. Two-way communication with patients.
Added patients and public input to our task forces.
Developed an online Patient Guide to Anesthesia and Surgery

3. Enhancing implementation of emerging technology.
Committee on Technology developed education tools on technology
Consensus Conference on Emerging Technology

4. Engagement and outreach to trainees and early career anesthesia providers.
Working with the ASA to develop a learning module on patient safety for trainees and early career providers
Working with IHI to spread their program on certification in patient safety

5. Enhance collaborations. While maintaining current collaborations we have developed several new
collaborations with relevant stakeholders.

6. International engagement.
Planned international meetings with the Indonesian Society of Anesthesiologists
Planned international meeting with the Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists
Presentations at two meetings in Brazil

Our capabilities for meeting our goals is quite high.

We have had success in implementing our strategic plan. We will continue to refresh our plan at every board meeting with a full and more comprehensive assessment in 2025.
