Trial ID or NCT#

NCT01688271

Status

RECRUITING

Purpose

This study will determine the efficacy of a teaching program incorporating hybrid simulation in training practicing anesthesiologists on ultrasound (US)-guided continuous peripheral nerve block (CPNB). This study will also examine the extent of practice change following participation in a regional anesthesia teaching program incorporating hybrid simulation. In addition, this study will assess remaining obstacles to incorporating the use of US-guided perineural catheters through identifying potential future interventions and "tool-kits" for setting up perineural catheter programs.
