Dutton, MD, MBA at Somnia Anesthesia’s annual leadership retreat in New Rochelle, New York on December 6. Dr. Dutton, executive director of the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI), advocated for a culture where clinicians “aren’t afraid to talk about what went wrong.” The AQI was established in 2009 by the American Society of Anesthesiologists as part of its quality improvement mission.
