Overview A one day hands-on practical course provides anaesthetists and trainees with the opportunity to learn new skills and theoretical knowledge to enhance their practice of regional anaesthesia. The anatomy laboratory at the University of QLD is purpose built for the education of medical and allied health staff where participants will receive guidance from experts in regional anaesthesia. In addition to a comprehensive theoretical component, practical sessions include: • Head, neck and eye block • Tap blocks • Lumbar, thoracic and paravertebral • Sciatic and lower limb • Upper limb • Needling and Ultrasound. Participants of the workshop will gain new knowledge and the confidence to perform regional anaesthesia in their clinical setting. Workstations are conducted in small groups, limited to 6 to allow adequate time for practice at each workstation. This event has been established since 2005 with positive feedback from previous participants. This workshop is being run separately from the ASA 2014 Congress as a stand-alone event and as such registration details and payment are not covered under your ASA Congress registration. Closing date for Registration Closing date for registration is 5 September 2014. Due to limited space, an early registration is highly recommended. Registration is on a first come first served basis.
