On This Episode:

The world of healthcare and medicine is built on procedures that are meticulously followed and rarely questioned. These dogmas get passed over time and eventually just become accepted as the way it’s done. In a profession that’s a regimented as nurse anesthesia, that’s not a surprise.

But have you ever taken a step back and wondered why something was done a certain way? Where’s the evidence for what you did? We decided to ask these questions on this episode of the Beyond the Mask Podcast. To help us get answers and find an explanation for why dogmas and traditions continue on, let’s talk with Peter Strube, CRNA, DNAP.

Strube is a lecturer in the College of Nursing at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and frequently speaks to groups around the country. If you’ve listened to one of his talks before, you’ll leave thinking and questioning things. His past in the military, where many nursing procedures are developed, has given him a unique perspective and a lifetime of experience.

In our discussion today, we’ll talk about the current dogma trends, which is the oddest, what it takes to break tradition, and what the future might hold for the industry.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
