Keywords: Assessment | Spinal Anaesthesia | Competence | Simulation

As performance assessment in medicine moves into a competence-based era thereis a need to develop procedure-specific tools for evaluating technical ability.Spinal anaesthesia is one of the fundamental skills of the practicing anaesthetist.Changes in learning opportunities for trainees over the last decade mandates achange in the way practical skills are taught and assessed. In order to optimise theway the practical skill of spinal anaesthesia is acquired by trainee anaesthetists, itwill be necessary to combine newer methods (e.g. simulation, structured feedbackand assessment) with older techniques (e.g. didactic learning, clinicaldemonstration). The use of proven concepts from disciplines outside medicineshould also be considered.
