The objectives of this study were to summarise these topics and to prioritise these topics in order of research importance.Design Electronic structured Delphi questionnaire over three rounds.Setting International. Participants 38 experts in regional anaesthesia education and training, identified through the American Society of Regional Anesthesia Education Special Interest Group research collaboration. Results 82 topics were identified and ranked in order of prioritisation. Topics were categorised into themes of simulation, curriculum, knowledge translation, assessment of skills, research methodology, equipment and motor skills. Thirteen topics were ranked as essential research priority, with four topics each on simulation and curriculum, three topics on knowledge translation, and one topic each on methodology and assessment. Conclusions Researchers and educators can use these identified topics to assist in planning and structuring their research and training in regional anaesthesia education
