Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®)


The goal of the ABA-required simulation activity is to enhance and document participation in Practice Performance and Improvement (PPAI) activities. Our MOCA® simulation programs focus on presenting scenarios designed to help the participant identify areas and projects for their PPAI programs. A major portion of the simulation process is dedicated to a detailed debriefing regarding the action, decisions, and processes arising in each scenario. Peer to peer, guided debriefing will occupy at least 30 percent of the educational process. debriefings may also include handouts and/or brief presentations on key clinical issues.
