This program’s faculty, comprised of physicians who themselves transitioned from the traditional use of anesthesia to ultrasound-guided anesthesia in their own practices and can speak on that experience, its advantages to patient care and the effect on best practices, will address barriers to physician change, as well as demonstrate, teach and improve upon the individual learner’s theoretical knowledge base and performance techniques to reach a level
of proficiency that provides the comfort level participants seek to break down barriers in their own practices.

On March 29th, (8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) TM) the course offers in-depth and hands-on education on Neuraxial, Paravertebral, Interscalene, Supraclavicular, Infraclavicular, Axillary, Femoral, TAP, Sciatic, and Popliteal blocks and ultrasound basics, followed by cadaver, ultrasound and live models lab sessions that are carefully designed to educate and fully engage course attendees in all of the educational activities. All information will be disseminated through a combination of lectures,
