Anesthesia & Analgesia journal devotes October issue to DEI

By: Brita Belli

Editor's Note

Citing the pervasive connections between healthcare disparities and race and gender, Anesthesia & Analgesia, the oldest publication dedicated exclusively to the specialty of anesthesiology, is devoting its October 2023 issue to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) topics in the field. The issue lays out a number of practical approaches to implementing DEI measures.

Topics include:

  • leading change and managing resistance for DEI in anesthesiology departments 
  • assuring the groundwork for success—mentorship, sponsorship, and allyship for practicing anesthesiologists 
  • perspectives on ethnic and language diversity and perioperative neurocognitive disorders 
  • championing the mom—the role of a mother's support group in academic anesthesia practice 
  • the anesthesiology physician-scientist pipeline—current status and recommendations for future growth, an initiative of the Anesthesia Research Council.

 The journal intends for this special issue to be part of its ongoing commitment to and coverage of DEI, and included an evaluation of its own editorial board, which was found to include 50% non-US editors and 28% women editors, comparable to the percentage of women in anesthesiology.
