IDANA partners with The Society for Opioid Free Anesthesia (SOFA) and collaborates with the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) Opioid Safety Strategy in order to address the current opioid crisis.
The Society for Opioid Free Anesthesia (SOFA) is a non-profit organization formed to research, promote and educate anesthesia professionals and the general public on opioid-free pain management techniques.
