Pain management using ultrasound-guided local anaesthetic techniques
Ultrasound-guided injections of local anaesthetic around peripheral nerves are thought to improve patient recovery following major surgery. In this project, we plan to evaluate the efficacy of a number of different ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks. Students will contribute to both clinical and anatomical research. They will have direct patient contact and collect data required to support current and future programs of research designed to identify best clinical practice. Patient-centric outcomes will be surgery specific and also include validated scales that measure quality of recovery and long term outcomes including persistent post-surgical pain.
