The purpose of this 1-day CPD course is for injection therapists who need to maintain their competencies to keep up to date with best practice.
Aimed at physiotherapists or medical practitioners who employ MSK injection techniques in their clinical practice, this update day is a chance to gain clinically relevant CPD hours while broadening their knowledge base.
Attendees will benefit from hands-on, practical review time. This is a refresher of problem-solving in MSK injections, guided by experts, as well as peer group discussion on the nuances of chosen injection sites.
The programme will include:
- Case scenarios;
- Advances in injection technique;
- Alternative techniques/positions;
- Update on prescribing and legislation;
- Clinical application of PRP injection;
- Hyaluronic acid for arthritis;
- Imaging in injection therapy;
- Use of alternative or emergent injection agents;
- Q & A Session;
- Peer group discussion.
We want course participants to feel confident in all aspects of their speciality. The CPD course programme – which is both detailed and objective in outlook – is continually evolving in line with current evidence and practice to incorporate new skills and knowledge. This means there is an aspect of flexibility to the day.
There will be workshops on specific areas of interest, in which we can troubleshoot difficult cases or brush up on aspects we might not often be confronted with in the course of a working week. There’s the option to revisit injection sites you haven’t performed for some time, so if for instance circumstances have meant you haven’t performed many knee injections since your training, we might re-examine current knee injection technique, and cover recent developments in the field as an avenue into hyaluronan injections, for example, or similar injection agents.
Our next CPD course programme – from October 2018 – will include demos of guided MSK injection techniques and analysis of prescribing and the effects of drugs on tissue.
Students can also expect a summary of the injection agents and anatomical positions studied in treatment areas such as platelet rich plasma therapy, hyaluronic acid for joints and visco therapy. While the course does not specifically teach these practical applications, (namely viscosupplementation, PRP injections, or autologous blood) these newer and alternative agents will be encompassed within wider principles and comparable injection techniques.
Together we will revise the particulars and reappraise the anatomical positions of different injection sites.
Hands-on, cutting edge, relevant – practitioners will enjoy their injection CPD hours as a rare opportunity to perfect and practice their skills and discuss the finer points of their medical specialism.
The courses are open to clinicians licensed to use injection techniques and who are registered with their professional regulatory body (e.g. Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or General Medical Council (GMC).
