Rapid Education Event: A Streamlined Approach to Ultrasound Guided Nerve Block Procedural Training.
In the Emergency Medicine Residency setting, procedural ultrasound education often takes place at the bedside when the procedure becomes clinically necessary. As ultrasound technology and its applications continue to gain more importance, there is a greater need for effective and standardized educational models for teaching ultrasound-guided procedures. This pilot program aimed to demonstrate that residents and attending physicians can achieve procedural competence in fascia iliaca nerve block following a rapid and compact procedural education event. Our curriculum covered anatomy identification, procedural knowledge, and technical skills of probe manipulation. After completing our new curriculum, more than 90% of participants demonstrated adequate learning through the pre- and post-assessments and direct observation of procedural performance on a gel phantom model.
