Background and Aims:

Our hospital holds monthly, regional anaesthetic, educational meetings. We aimed to ascertain whether the department was satisfied with the current format (2 journal presentations, 2 live demonstration scans plus audience practice scans under consultant guidance) and if not, what changes they would like made in the future, in order to maximise educational potential. Ethical committee approval unnecessary for medical personal questionnaire surveys.

Methods:

An electronic survey was sent to all members of our anaesthetic department. Respondents were asked if they had attended Sonoclub within the last year, if not then why this was the case. Respondents were asked to rate their approval (1-5) of various aspects of the meeting’s current format and what they would prefer in future meetings.

Results:

Amongst attendees, none wanted more journal presentations, 57% were happy with the current allocated scanning time, 35% wanted more. 56% agreed or strongly agreed that education aimed at EDRA examinations would be beneficial. 78% agreed or strongly agreed that discussing ongoing regional anaesthetic projects e.g audit would be valuable. 69% agreed or strongly agreed that they would rather concentrate on basic blocks rather than advanced ones. 73% of non attenders sited clashing of other commitments as reason for absence.  Only 9% felt regional anaesthesia wasn’t relevant to their everyday practice. 

Conclusions:

Feedback is vital to continually improve educational content. Via this survey we’ve been able to alter and improve our teaching programme, tailoring to the department’s wishes, enabling maximum educational effectiveness.
