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 injections.
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 specficially designed to build up applied anatomical knowledge, muscle identification, practical skills, probe handling and image orientation confidence in a progressive manner through repetition. To be conducted over a period of five weeks.
All delegates are sent an Orca POD Toolbox comprising handheld ultrasound scanner, tablet, gel and phantom which are provided for the duration of the training. The POD Toolbox incorporates all necessary elements 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 and will equip students with the essential cognitive skills necessary to begin incorporating ultrasound imaging guidance into their daily clinical practice for spasticity management.
There will be an assignment at the end of each session which helps the delegates to revise the concepts learnt during session and to provide framework for practising the skills.
The course concludes with a skills assessment and review.
