New webinars available for members

We have two new webinars available exclusively for members.

Firstly, from last year, "Confronting the Dark Side of regional anaesthesia", featuring talks about nerve injury, managing failed blocks and coagulation, as well as on how to monitor follow up, teaching during the pandemic and how to measure quality.

And secondly, from this year,  "Innovation in regional anaesthesia", featuring talks on new devices, new drugs, new blocks, new horizons and a cautionary tale to end it.


You can access both these videos by logging into the website, and they will appear in the webinar menu, along with other previous member only webinars. We hope you enjoy them.
