6th ESRA Educational Video Competition - ESRA

An international jury will select six finalists, and the videos will be displayed during the 41st ESRA Annual Congress. In Prague, a special session will be held in which anyone with a tele voting app will take part in selecting the winners.

Educational videos are one of the most effective tools for training regional anaesthesia and pain medicine techniques. Videos are used widely both as self-improvement tools and as CME materials.

ESRA celebrates the passion and commitment of our many members who produce educational videos, often doing so with no professional help.

Our last edition has collected contribution from 19 teams out of 13 countries. We can do better this time, can't we?

So take part in the 6th edition by submitting your educational video!
