Grants

With the aim of supporting basic scientific and clinical research in the fields of local anaesthetic pharmacology, surgery, obstetrics and pain management, ESRA offers 2 different Grant programmes:

 

ESRA Research Grant

The European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy (ESRA) proudly presents the ESRA Research Grant in order to achieve the distinctive goals of ESRA such as

 

  • to encourage specialisation of anaesthesiologists and other physicians in regional anaesthesia or pain management
  • to promote, sponsor and encourage research in experimental, epidemiological or clinical settings regarding regional anaesthesia or pain management
  • to help anaesthesiologists in under-resourced countries to develop their scientific programmes

ESRA members from all over the world are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be ESRA members and should be in at least their third year of medical specialisation.

Applications can be forwarded any time of the year to the ESRA Office.

 

Two ESRA Research Grants were awarded in 2015:

  • Dr. Geertrui Dewinter – Comparison of transversus abdominis plane block, perioperative intravenous lidocaine and patient-controlled analgesia with intravenous morphine for postoperative pain control after laparoscopic colorectal surgery: a prospective, randomized, double-blind controlled clinical trial
  • Dr. Pia Jæger – Does perineural dexamethason prolong duration of an adductor canal block when controlling for a systemic effect? A randomized, blinded, crossover study in healthy volunteers

ESRA Educational Grant

The European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy (ESRA) offers the ESRA Educational Grant in order to achieve the distinctive goals of ESRA:

 

  • to encourage specialisation of anaesthesiologists and other physicians in regional anaesthesia or pain management
  • to promote and sponsor courses and workshops
  • to encourage teaching of regional anaesthesia in anaesthesiology training programmes
  • to help anaesthesiologists in under resourced countries

 

ESRA members from all over the world are encouraged to apply. However, emphasis will be placed  on applications from anaesthesiologists coming from countries that lack the financial infrastructures needed to achieve the education in regional anaesthesia. Such countries include some eastern European or African nations.

Applicants should be ESRA members, have spent a minimal amount of time in their specialty, and be  in at least their third year of medical specialisation.

 

Applications deadline –   June 30th, 2016 and December, 31st 2016
