The 2015 ASA/APSF Ellison C. Pierce, Jr., Patient Safety Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Mark A. Warner, M.D. Dr. Warner has chosen for his lecture the topic “Expanding Our Influence: How the Perioperative Surgical Home Will Improve Patient Safety.”

This annual honorary lecture was established by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and ASA to recognize and sustain the memory of the founding president of APSF and past ASA president (1984), Ellison C. (Jeep) Pierce, Jr., M.D. It was Dr. Pierce’s vision and unwavering commitment to anesthesia patient safety that led to the formation of APSF in 1985 as the first medical specialty foundation devoted solely to addressing patient safety. Today, the specialty of anesthesiology, ASA and APSF are recognized as pioneers in advocating for patient safety, as APSF strives to achieve its vision that “no patient shall be harmed by anesthesia.”
