Stop before you block

Stop before you block

Stop Before You Block (SB4YB) is an initiative that started at Nottingham University Hospital in 2010 following a series of inadvertent wrong-sided nerve blocks. Below are some resources for anaesthesia departments to use in in the operating theatre and for educational purposes, and to help individual anaesthetists to take part in the “Stop before you block” campaign, supported by ANZCA. More information can be found here. 

In keeping with its dedication to safety and quality of care for the community, ANZCA has established a Safety and Quality Committee to assist the ANZCA Council in advancing this mission.

More information about this can be found on the Safety and Quality webpage on the ANZCA website
