This course is designed to provide the practitioner with the essential probe handling and image orientation skills required to begin learning to use ultrasound imaging in targeted intramuscular injection.
A home-based programme of practical instruction facilitated by provision of an ultrasound scanner to each student. The series of remotely delivered interactive video conference sessions with accompanying practice exercises has been specifically designed to build up probe handling and image orientation confidence in a progressive manner through repetition.
To be conducted over a period of four weeks.
All delegates are sent an Orca POD Toolbox comprising a handheld ultrasound scanner, tablet, gel and phantom which are provided for the entire duration of the training. The POD Toolbox incorporates all necessary elements to enable the progressive acquisition of probe handling and basic image orientation skills through home-based practice. The teaching programme is delivered by a combination of interactive lectures and practice exercises and will equip students with the essential cognitive skills necessary to begin incorporating ultrasound imaging into their daily clinical practice.
