Description

Who Should Attend The Joint Injection Course? 

This one day Joint Injection Course is aimed at practitioners working with musculoskeletal patients who would like to improve their assessment, diagnosis and management skills of musculoskeletal conditions, including the role of, theory behind and practical use of corticosteroid joint and tissue injections.

This is a highly practical course, and consists of a series of short and punchy lectures in the morning, following by hands on demonstrations and supervised practice for the rest of the day.

The Joint Injection Course is designed for GPs, hospital doctors, nurse practitioners and other primary care professionals, but is also suitable for any healthcare professional looking to expand the range of treatments they offer.

The aim of the course is to enable delegates to be able to use the skills they gain immediately within their practice.

All Allied Health Professionals should confirm the education requirements with their Professional Body prior to the practice of injection therapy. Many professions will require a post graduate diploma in injection therapy, which this course will not provide. For AHPs, it will serve as an excellent introduction or as a CPD refresher for these treatments.
