This course is for Doctors only.

This one day injection course blends lectures, joint assessment demonstrations, clinical scenarios, and practical time with injection practice on full body Thiel fixed Cadavers (Shoulder, Elbow & Hand, Hip & Knee, Foot & Ankle) in order to correctly identify injection target.

On completion of the course the delegates should be able to explain the pharmacology of local anaesthetic and corticosteroid drugs as well as the indications for and contraindications to injection techniques. They will also be able to perform peripheral joint examination/assessment of patients and to correctly identify the pathology and determine the appropriate drug selection and dosage.

The course will help the delegate develop skills required to perform safe peripheral joint injection.
