This is a home-based programme of practical instruction facilitated by provision of an ultrasound scanner to each delegate. This series of remotely delivered interactive video conference sessions, with accompanying practice exercises, has been specifically designed to develop applied anatomical knowledge, muscle identification and practical skills. You will build confidence and gain probe handling and orientation skills in a progressive manner through repetition of ultrasound assessment of normal anatomy over a period of 4 weeks.
For the duration of the course, all delegates are sent an Orca POD Toolbox containing a Konica Minolta MX1 ultrasound system with L18-4 high frequency linear transducer, gel phantom, ultrasound gel and wipes. The POD Toolbox incorporates all the elements necessary to enable the progressive acquisition of knowledge and skills through home-based practice.
The teaching programme is delivered by a combination of interactive lectures and practice exercises that will equip delegates with the essential cognitive skills necessary to begin incorporating ultrasound imaging into their daily clinical assessment.
There is an assignment at the end of each session which helps the delegates to revise the concepts learnt during each session and to provide a framework for practising those skills.
Capacity is limited to 10 delegates per course.
