ASRA 2018

2018 World Congress on Regional Anaesthesia & Pain Medicine

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 – Sat, 21 Apr 2018

Bringing together our five continental societies, the European Society of Regional Anaesthesia & Pain Therapy (ESRA), the Latin American Society of Regional anaesthesia (LASRA), the Asia-Oceania Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine (AOSRA), and the African Society of Regional anaesthesia (AFSRA), the meeting will be held simultaneously with ASRA’s 43rd Annual Regional Anaesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine meeting. Held every four years, this is the fifth time these organizations have convened for this very special meeting.

We will offer three days of the latest updates on regional anaesthesia, acute pain, and chronic pain, with many of the world’s leading experts serving on our faculty. Sessions will include live model and cadaver workshops; highly interactive sessions, such as problem-based learning discussions, ask the expert interactive sessions, and audience-submitted content; a busy exhibit hall with ePoster viewing and the latest innovations from our industry supporters; and many unique, educational, and fun networking events including our Excellence in ASRA Awards Luncheon and a Saturday night celebration befitting our ideal location on Broadway Avenue in Times Square.

       On behalf of our scientific committee, representing all five continental societies, we look forward to sharing and interacting with our colleagues across the globe in the “city that never sleeps,” New York, New York!
