In conjunction with UF Anesthesia department, Dr. Catherine Price has launched a Perioperative Cognitive Anesthesia Network (PeCAN) in UF surgical center. The program includes interdisciplinary research, clinical, and training arms. This effort represents a stellar example of translation from clinical research to clinical care.  The clinical program is housed in UF Health’s PreSurgical Center where nurses and anesthesia clinical staff now routinely assess “cognitive vital signs”.
