Home – Welcome to LUCAS 2022

This year’s edition of LUCAS promises to again deliver focused, practical, clinically relevant anesthesia topics. Once again, you can take it all in from the comfort of your own home! Our sessions will be delivered online with interactive live Q&A, and recorded for review anytime by attendees.

We have spread out our conference into three weekday evening sessions, plus a main event on Saturday.  Everyone who logs-in live will have access to Q&A with our expert panelists via our industry-leading online platform.  Virtual LUCAS offers an incredible value for Anesthesiology Continuing Professional Development, in a format that is convenient and accessible.  We can’t wait to see you online again in 2022!
