3rd ESRA Educational Video Competition - ESRA

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

At the same time, we recognise the need to standardise the quality and structure of the videos being produced. Clear standards will hopefully encourage members to produce even more videos in the future.

The first edition of the Esra Video Competition has collected contributions from 10 teams out of 5 nations. The second edition did much better with 21 videos coming from four continents!

We can do better this time, can't we?

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