ESRA wishes to support and encourage Instructors in the field of Regional Anesthesia (RA) by providing additional educational knowledge, teaching skills and instruction techniques.
Required qualifications of an RA instructor are defined by ESRA:
Passing the EDRA (European Diploma in Regional Anaesthesia & Acute Pain Management) diploma parts I and II successfully demonstrates the expert knowledge of an RA instructor. However, being an expert in RA and having passed EDRA does not automatically result in great teaching skills. Therefore, this course focuses on "how" to teach in the first place instead of "what" is taught.
This course aims to develop teaching skills of regional anaesthesia instructors. Regional anaesthesia techniques; indications, performance of specific blocks are not the primary focus of this course. It is understood that attendees master these techniques on a high level by meeting enrolment criteria to the course.
At the end of this course, attendees will have gained a detailed understanding of adult learning styles, teaching styles, the role of the instructor and methods of delivering feedback within the context of regional anaesthesia and pain medicine.
Having completed this course the participant will develop as a proficient instructor with the following characteristics:
