Spotlight: 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.
