ESRA is strongly committed to pursue its aims in stimulating research, promoting education, and training anaesthetists in Regional Anaesthesia, Pain Therapy, PoCUS and Peri-operative care, in Europe and abroad. Due to travelling restrictions and obligation to follow social distancing, we decided to develop and implement ESRA webinars.

ESRA webinars is a new feature of ESRA to overcome these restrictions and deliver optimal and updated information on those specific topics.

ESRA webinars happen every last Thursday of the month at 7pm CET. These live sessions last 60 minutes and are accredited with 1 CME point.

Registration is free and the video recordings are available on ESRA Academy.
