Interested in organising a seminar?

We're looking for new seminar material, both lecture and workshop based.

What is a seminar

The Association is the UK’s leading provider of postgraduate education for all pathways into Anaesthesia. The Association’s seminar programme features leading experts in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine presenting the latest information and thinking on a variety of key anaesthesia topics. Our seminars are designed to focus on a specific field of interest within anaesthesia and help to build on specialist interests. They offer an intimate learning environment, with a maximum of 50 delegates attending each. Keeping the numbers low encourages delegate and faculty interaction.

About this seminar

The use of ultrasound in anaesthetic practice has opened up exciting possibilities. Spinal sonography is one of the many applications where ultrasound can be used not only to improve the success of procedures done on the spine by anaesthetists and chronic pain physicians, but also to reduce the incidence of complications.

Intended audience

Aimed at anaesthetists with an interest in spinal sonography. Consultant anaesthetists, trainee anaesthetists (ST3+), SAS anaesthetists. 

Learning objectives

The aim of this seminar is to give an introduction to spinal sonography via lecture demonstrations, and extensive hands on scanning of volunteers. The areas covered will include anaesthesia/analgesia and chronic pain procedures on cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine (including paravertebral procedures) and caudal blocks.

Sponsors and exhibitors

Coming soon.
