Stamford School of Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound-guided Nerve Block Course

SSRA’s course is one of the only courses to integrate a surgeon and an administrator’s perspectives of regional anesthesia.

The Stamford School of Regional Anesthesia(SSRA) received high praise for its ultrasound-guided nerve block seminar held on May 2, 2015. Worth 8 hours of CME credit for anesthesiologists, SSRA’s course is one of the only courses to integrate a surgeon and an administrator’s perspectives of regional anesthesia. It is also offered online.

“Our seminar is an opportunity for anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, anesthesia residents, acute pain physicians and nurses, and nerve block program nurses to learn how to manage acute pain with peripheral nerve catheters under ultrasound guidance,” says SSRA Director Theresa Bowling, MD. “It also teaches participants how to launch successful inpatient and ambulatory nerve block and catheter programs, and how to get paid for them.”

In the past, the SSRA’s seminar has been commended for its high quality information and its engaging and clearly knowledgeable instructors. After this most recent seminar, participant responses suggest attendees were equally impressed.

For some, the course’s demonstration of how to perform certain nerve blocks was its most useful aspect.

“The TAP block lecture is great,” commented one participant. Another described the course’s PEC block lecture as “well organized and wonderful.”

Other participants valued the course’s fresh perspective.

“I appreciate how Dr. Bowling shared her experience of her regional anesthesia program from the start to present day. It was very encouraging.”

Overall, the aspect of the seminar that received the most praise was its “detailed explanations of how to logistically set up a regional anesthesia service.”

“As an anesthesiologist, it is vital to be up-to-date in the latest techniques in regional anesthesia and pain management,” says Dr. Bowling. “If you can avoid all of the unwanted side effects related to general anesthesia, this translates to a faster recovery and very often a decreased length in stay with the in-patient population. Once you've learned how to do a US-guided nerve block, the challenge is how to integrate the program into your practice. SSRA has all of the tools you need to overcome these obstacles.”
