Congratulations to Dr. Salameh Obeidat on a successful 2-day ICU quality improvement workshop with the Jordanian Ministry of Health ICU. Dr. Obeidat was the director of this course as well as an instructor, and he was joined by colleagues Dr. Michael Wollenberg, Critical Care fellow Dr. Rudi Zurbuchen, and Tanya Harrold as speakers and instructors. The intense 2-day course focused on "Comprehensive Quality and Safety Capacity Building in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)" at the Ministry of Health through an in-depth exploration of quality and safety practices in the ICU, thereby aiding the Ministry of Health in Jordan to establish a robust quality control program curriculum for Critical Care fellows and staff.

Drs. Tera Cushman, Elizabeth Hays, and Andrea Nagengast published the review article Perioperative Care of the Patient with Directives Limiting Life-Sustaining Treatments in Anesthesiology Clinics. The review leverages the perspectives of pre-operative medicine, anesthesiology, and surgery to describe longitudinal best practices for each member of the perioperative care team from first pre-surgical visit to discharge and post-operative care.
