2 Day Cadaveric MSK & Sports Medicine Ultrasound Guided Injection Course (New for 2017)

Course overview Why choose this course? Who should attend? Tutors Day One Day Two

Course Overview

This comprehensive, unique and highly practical 2 day course takes place in the impressive facilities at St Georges cadaver laboratory in London and is the essential course for anyone looking to carry out ultrasound guided procedures or for clinicians looking to progress their skills to more advanced techniques.

The practical workshops are carried out on soft preserved cadavers which is the closest match to the real thing! The course allows ample practice with close supervision to perfect your skills.

The course is taught by very experienced practitioners who will deliver the information you need and translate this information into the practical application of carrying out the guided injections. This course is packed with clinical gems, top tips when to inject when not to inject, what to look out for and to avoid with each procedure and how to make the procedures as straight forward for the clinician and as comfortable as possible for the client. basic procedures including all peri-articular and articular injections and more advanced procedures that are at the cutting edge of MSK and sports medicine. This include barbotage, hydro-distention, high volume injections and tendon stripping techniques. Following this course you will be ready to either start carrying out guided injections on your clients or ready to introduce the more advanced techniques into your repertoire.

Day One – Lower Limb

09:00 – 09:15 Registration  Housekeeping and registration
09:15 – 09:30 Presentation & Discussion  Outline of the day – Course objectives & an introduction to the tutors
09:30 – 09:45 Presentation & Discussion Types of injections – we will cover joint, tendon sheath and nerve injections plus more advanced procedures including barbotage, high volume injections, hydrodistention, tendon stripping and dry needling techniques What should we inject and when? – a review of the evidence and tutors experience.
 09:45 – 10:15 Presentation & Discussion The evidence base for US guided injections – is it worth it?

  • Are guided injections more accurate
  • Do they improve outcomes
  • Do they reduce unwanted side effects?

How do injections fit into an overall clinical management plan?

 10:15 – 10:45 Presentation and practical demonstrations Procedural consideration of US guided injections – discussion around sterility, aseptic technique, probe covers and the use of sterile gel and anti-bacterial agents.
Injection technique – including top tips of how to manipulate your probe and your machine parameters to visualise the needle tip

11:30 – 12:30 Practical workshop Delegates will practise guiding the needle on US using meat specimens and phantoms in both transverse and longitudinal planes and practise incorporating US into their present technique.
12:30 – 13:15 Lunch
Afternoon Practical Workshop For each area we will teach you the simplest but most effective technique for each injection. For each procedure the room set up e.g. the patient machine & clinician positioning, probe position, needle angle and plinth height will be discussed. These are key components for performing an effective injection.Cadaver prosections will be used to review the anatomy of each injection site and identify the neural and vascular structures to be avoided during the procedures.
