eLearningThis practical course will develop the theoretical concepts discussed in the SonoSkills elearning musculoskeletal injection course. This 5-hour online course is included in the registration and participants will have access for 6 months starting on the first course day..
Why USGI?Injection therapy is an important adjunct for the physician, surgeon or physiotherapist who manages patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Ultrasound-guidance provides more accuracy and therefore more efficacy and cost-effectiveness compared to landmark-guided injections.
PrerequisiteIt is strongly advised that you complete a basic (elearning) MSK ultrasound prior to attending this course to maximize the learning of important concepts.
Target audienceRadiologists, GPs, Sport Medicine Doctors, Rheumatologists, Orthopaedic surgeons, Pain consultants, PMR doctors and any other allied health professionals able to legally inject MSK conditions under the state and/or national law.
