Workshops

We expect that most delegates will prefer to attend all of the ‘How I do it’ sessions, however we will also run some clinically focussed workshops in parallel to the symposia for those delegates who wish to freshen up their scanning skills for a particular clinical subset of nerve blocks.  There will also be workshops targeted at the infrequent blocker or ultrasound novice, which focus on 6 nerve blocks that cover almost everything. For the afternoon workshop sessions, delegates can choose only 1 of the 4 sessions.

 

Day 1 workshop sessions

 

  • 6 blocks for beginners to cover almost everything

  • Nerve blocks for shoulder surgery

  • Nerve blocks for awake hand, wrist, forearm

  • Nerve blocks for abdominal surgery

  • Nerve blocks for hip fracture surgery

  • Nerve blocks for chest wall (breast/ribs)

  • Spinal and paraspinal sonoanatomy

  • Nerve blocks for awake foot and ankle surgery

  • Nerve blocks for total knee arthroplasty

  • Introduction to lung POCUS

  • Introduction to gastric POCUS

  • Regional anaesthesia for obstetric anaesthesia


Workshop sessions will run parallel to the expert clinical symposia, and delegates can choose which workshop session(s) they wish to attend (up to a maximum of 2). Please consult both the workshop and symposia timetables to avoid missing your preferred symposia. 

 

Workshop places are limited.
