Welcome to Project Spruce

Saving our Planet by Reducing Carbon Emissions: an Anesthesiology Quality Improvement Project

Principal Investigators Elizabeth Hansen and Diane Gordon

What is Project Spruce?

We are anesthesiologists dedicated to reducing the environmental footprint of our care, and we have come together to reduce emissions from anesthetic gasses using proven implementation science methods.

We are thrilled to invite anesthesia groups to consider joining our second cohort in a multi-institutional quality improvement project to reduce anesthesia GHG emissions called Project Spruce. We use implementation science methods to achieve or surpass our goal of 50% reduction in GHG emissions in each participating center over 12 months. We are pleased to share that Lynn Martin (Professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine and former president of SPA) has agreed to serve as our mentor for this project
