2017 Award

The Researcher of the Year Award is named in memory of John F. Garde, a previous Foundation Trustee, AANA Executive Director, and charter member of the AANA Foundation. The John F. Garde Researcher of the Year Award recognizes people who have made significant contributions to the practice of anesthesia through research. The AANA Foundation presents the prestigious 2017 John F. Garde Researcher of the Year Award to the AANA Foundation Closed Claim Research Team. In 1995, a team of CRNAs convened to analyze insurance claims where CRNAs were involved in or contributed to an adverse anesthetic event. In 2013, four of the original team members revitalized the initiative with eight new research team members. The new team has enhanced the closed claims research by conducting rigorous qualitative analysis to enrich the research findings. Since its inception, the Closed Claim Research Team has produced over 100 presentations, 25 posters and 10 published articles addressing anesthesia adverse outcomes.
