About this online seminar
This online seminar is run jointly with RA-UK.
Regional anaesthesia is capable of providing excellent safe pain relief for patients, yet it presents unique challenges. In this seminar, engaging experts from across the UK will confront these head on. The first half will consider the risks of regional anaesthesia, consider how we mitigate these and how we manage them if they occur. In the second half we will consider how we teach and train, especially in an era of social distancing, how to utilise technology to follow up patients and consider if it is possible to measure the quality of our practice.
The seminar is aimed at consultants or senior trainees working in the NHS setting. The seminar is aimed at those with an interest in regional anaesthesia, supporting revalidation in this area, but technical skills in regional anaesthesia are NOT required. It is also intended to be thought provoking and challenging.
