Samer NarouzeIn a January 2022 Subspecialty News article, Samer Narouze and co-author Angie Stengel informed ASA Monitor readers that the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine had formally changed its name to ASRA Pain Medicine, calling the new name “a refreshed brand story and logo that evokes our attention to the entire pain continuum.” And just this month, Dr. Narouze and Ms. Stengel shared news about ASRA Pain Medicine’s growth over the past year, including being officially seated in the AMA House of Delegates, representation in RVS Update committee meetings, and big increases in abstract submissions to their Annual Pain Meeting.

Dr. Narouze and his ASRA Pain Medicine colleagues have often been sought out by the media over the years, but with the publication of the society’s “ASRA Pain Medicine consensus guidelines on the management of the perioperative patient on cannabis and cannabinoids” earlier this month, Dr. Narouze has been a key contact lately for major media outlets, including:

USA Today: Heavy marijuana use should be disclosed before surgery, new guidelines say

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Cannabis interactions prompt new guidelines from anesthesiologists

UPI: Cannabis screening urged before surgeries requiring anesthesia

Forbes: New guidelines advise disclosing cannabis use before surgery

MedPage Today: Screen all surgery patients for cannabis use, new guidelines say

ASA Monitor authors like Samer Narouze are increasingly appearing in the news, and we’re excited to spotlight these experts and amplify their messages in ASA Monitor Today!
