For further information and to book a place please visit the Blue Bird Medical website or email info@bluebirdmedicaltraining.co.ukWith a maximum of 5 delegates, each course covers both NHS and cosmetic uses of Botulinum toxin as well as legal and ethical Issues. Now in its third year of accreditation with the RCGP we have gained very high feedback from delegates and all comment on how safe, confident and well supported they feel following attendance. There are lectures and discussions while allowing time for simulation and practice on mannequins before culminating in treating live models. All delegates will get suitable time to treat live models, receive a course booklet, samples of injection records and consent forms. All equipment for the day will be provided.As the use of Botulinum toxin continues to grow and evolve so it is important that GPs understand the common uses, side effects and be able to deal with its complications. GPs, even if not directly administering Botulinum toxin directly are very likely to encounter patients who have had Botulinum toxin. It is important to know the indications for the drug and also the complications that may arise. This course provides an introduction to Botulinum toxin allowing participants if they wish to continue on to level 7 courses proposed by Health Education England.Learning Objectives:• To understand the pharmacology, pharmacodynamics, safety issues and uses of Botulinum toxin• To understand the evidence base for common uses seen in General practice• To assess patients who may benefit from Botulinum toxin treatment• To safely prescribe and use Botulinum toxin for various medical uses including cosmetic uses• To understand the regulations around the safe use of Botulinum toxinEvent Dates & Venues• 19th January 2019 – NewcastleOrganiser nameBlue Bird Medical
