Why should you follow this hands-on course?
Ultrasound-guided injections of the extremity joints have great clinical relevance, as they provide more accuracy and precision than landmark-based or blind injections. By using ultrasound, the clinician can visualize the joint and surrounding structures, ensuring that the medication is delivered precisely to the intended area. This leads to improved patient outcomes, faster pain relief, and fewer side effects. It's important to learn advanced MSK ultrasound knowledge and skills to perform these injections safely and efficiently. Advanced ultrasound skills will bring tremendous value to professionals, leading to better patient outcomes, increased business, and more fun in the workplace.
This comprehensive 2-day course will enable you to learn and practice practical injection skills on upper and lower limb peripheral joint and soft tissue structures on cadaveric specimens under the close supervision of experienced tutors. There will be a maximum of three participants per ultrasound machine and a high tutor to participant ratio, enabling maximal learning and uptake of important injection skills.

What exactly is the included eLearning?
This practical course will develop the theoretical concepts discussed in the SonoSkills elearning musculoskeletal injection course. With 50 short videos and micro-learning moments totaling 5 hours of content, you'll enhance your abilities in musculoskeletal ultrasound and add valuable skills to your professional portfolio. This online course is included in the registration and participants will have access for 6 months starting on the first course day.

What is the hands-on course about?
