We are very pleased to offer this workshop with a learning opportunity that has a strong practical focus. This intensive workshop will be conducted using small group sessions. Participants will be able to practice upper extremity, torso and lower extremity regional anaesthesia procedures on cadaveric specimens. This opportunity will provide an excellent format to practice needle trajectories for a large range of nerve block procedures.
