Description

This one day 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 musculoskeletal corticosteroid 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 course is designed for GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals, but is also suitable for any healthcare professional looking to expand the range of treatments they can offer.
