Practical workshops

Due to the huge interest in practical workshops during our last conference, we have prepared 48 seats for you on workshops on Global FAST and on peripheral and compartmental nerve blocks! Those workshops will take place in two rounds and will be conducted by lecturers and their assistants.

We will practice the technique of performing the examination according to the Global FAST protocol, including AFAST, TFAST and VetBLUE. Practice on patients in teams of 3.

We will practice peripheral blockages of the anterior, posterior and intramural limbs. Practice on preparations in teams of 4.

Tickets for those workshops have been sold out.
