Incorporate Ultrasound-Guided Regional Anesthesia into Your Clinical Practice

The University of Cincinnati College of Nursing CRNA Symposium is designed to offer Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists the basic foundation needed to safely incorporate ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia (UGRA) into clinical practice.

Experts will use lectures and hands-on workshops to provide instruction on ultrasound in clinical practice, UGRA techniques – from basic to more advanced blocks – and business aspects of UGRA in clinical practice. Small, group workshops, supervised by instructors, will allow attendees to refine their skill by scanning live models and practicing needle guidance on training simulators.
