New toolkit available for CSA members:
Two of the biggest issues facing our profession at present are inappropriate scope expansion
and, somewhat encompassed within that, the recent attempts at title misappropriation. From
practicing unsupervised to non-physicians calling themselves “doctor” to officially self-identifying
as nurse anesthesiologists instead of nurse anesthetists, the movements are picking up both
audacity and traction.
While we at the California Society of Anesthesiologists (CSA) are working hard to enact legislative
changes at the state level to combat inappropriate scope expansion and title misappropriation,
we also want to empower you, giving you practical tools to make changes at the local level in your practices, facilities,
and systems to counteract these patient safety issues and protect physician led care.
