This week, Dr. Andy Roark talks with the original anesthesia nerd Tasha McNerney about how technicians can convince doctors to let them use new skills and knowledge they have acquired from CE. If you are a technician who wants to do more in your practice, or if you’re a doctor or manager who wants to be more comfortable allowing technicians to take on more responsibility, this episode is for you!
