NYSANA is pleased to announce that we are partnering with The Society for Opioid Free Anesthesia (SOFA)!  We know that New York CRNAs are at the forefront of combating the Opioid Crisis. Now NYSANA members will benefit from complimentary membership to SOFA.

The Society for Opioid-Free Anesthesia is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating anesthesia providers and patients on opioid-free anesthesia and pain management as well as promoting research in this field. Founded in January of 2017, it has quickly grown to include thousands of anesthesia providers on 3 continents who are changing the way they practice anesthesia to improve patient outcomes. They are using opioid-free anesthesia to provide a safer anesthetic by eliminating the respiratory depression opioids cause, choosing medication that provides superior post-operative pain control while greatly reducing the risk of addiction and dependence. 

Member benefits include:
  Helps support Opioid Free Anesthesia research and education
  Access to a growing library of Opioid Free Anesthesia research, case  
studies & block tutorials 
  Member only web forum to discuss Opioid Free Anesthesia
  Discounted rate for the 1st Annual Opioid Free Anesthesia Congress
  $99 off a Twin Oaks Anesthesia Course

In addition, NYSANA is hosting a 3-day symposium on Opioid Awareness in Times Square, New York October 19-21, 2018. We will welcome experts from SOFA and hear from Tonia Sells-Bales, CRNA from the top-rated podcast,“Dirty John.”  Click here for more information or to register.
