New Neuraxial Connectors: Soliciting Volunteers for Advisory Council

To help manufacturers and distributors to develop appropriate plans, CHPSO has been asked to develop an advisory council of those who frequently use neuraxial devices for fluid injection or withdrawal, such as anesthesiologists, neurologists and oncologists; and others involved in the medication and procurement process, such as pharmacists and materials managers. One product of this advisory council will be FAQs for hospitals and core messages for practitioners.

As this is an international effort, volunteers are welcome from any location world-wide.

For details, or to express interest in joining the council, contact Rory Jaffe at rjaffe@chpso.org.
