Physician Track - 2 day - $2,000
In 2010, anesthesiologists at Al performed over 2000 ultrasound-guided regional anesthetics, including over 1100 continuous ambulatory perineural catheter placements. Common blocks performed at Andrews include interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular. axillary. popliteal, femoral. saphenous, and TAP. Since our USRA preceptorship courses are held on the busiest block days, the result is an incredible opportunity for preceptors to witness a vast number of blocks, while interacting with the experts as they perform these procedures.
The USRA preceptorship track for nurses occurs on the same days as the physicians thus getting to experience the ASC at Andrews institute on it’s busiest block days. You will observe physicians as they perform upper and lower extremity catheter and single shot blocks. Your experience will also focus on shadowing the block nurses in their role. You will see in person how the block nurses maintain the efficiency of a block program, while learning the skills they use to keep their patients safe and happy. There is a lecture and scanning component also included in the two-day preceptorship.
