Why should you follow this hands-on course?
Ultrasound of the peripheral nervous system is a game changer! With nerve ultrasound, clinicians can accurately detect nerve abnormalities, including entrapments, injuries, and tumors, without exposing patients to radiation or invasive procedures. This technology also allows for real-time imaging and guidance during interventional procedures, such as nerve blocks and injections: the foundational diagnostic course would be a first step towards interventional ultrasound. Incorporating nerve ultrasound into practice not only improves diagnostic accuracy but also enhances patient outcomes by facilitating more targeted and effective treatment plans. Additionally, learning nerve ultrasound can expand a clinician's skill set, improve their practice's business, and be a fun and rewarding experience!

What exactly is the included eLearning?
This course is blended, meaning a combination of online and onsite learning. Blended learning is an additional element to classroom teaching and one which supports existing teaching practices. It combines many of the best elements of face-to-face teaching (personalized learning and social interaction) while allowing greater variety and flexibility than a traditional classroom setup, responding to the needs of the modern learner. Over 55 videos, totaling to 9 hours of content are available to you on-demand before, during, and after the course for 6 months. A €400 value included in your registration! 

Who can participate in the course?
This course is suitable for healthcare professionals who are interested in incorporating nerve ultrasound into their clinical practice. This may include neurologists, physiatrists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, pain management specialists, and other healthcare providers who wish to gain basic proficiency in nerve ultrasound.

Where is the course being held?
A warm welcome awaits you in Amsterdam, the capital of our nation. The city's distinctive character effortlessly combines history, culture, and modernity. Amsterdam is renowned for its charming canals, globally acclaimed museums, and lively nightlife, ensuring that visitors always have plenty of options.
