Course summary

We’re bringing together the theory, practice, evidence, safety, ethical and legal aspects of Injection Therapy. Our course will enhance your interdisciplinary working, professional development and reflective practice.

Our programme is suitable for physiotherapists, GPs, doctors, occupational therapists, podiatrists, nurses and other allied health professionals working in orthopaedics, rheumatology, neurological and musculoskeletal (MSK) patient management.

We’re offering routes for both neurological injection (botulinum toxin) and joint and soft tissue injection (steroid injections). On the course there are some joint sessions, as well as both subject specialist theory and practical sessions.

You’ll discuss and share your experiences and practices to help facilitate and debate critical evaluation of contemporary clinical issues in injection therapy practice.

Why study with us

  • Our course runs over five taught days with a three-day block and a two-day block, to allow easier release from your workplace.
  • We invite external speakers to contribute on the wider issues of injection therapy practice and development across both the MSK and neuro specialities.
  • You’ll have good access to experienced and currently practicing tutors.

Learning and assessment

Our course is delivered in both the classroom and specialist practical teaching rooms.

There are two assessments for this course. The first requires 10 injections which are assessed and signed off by your nominated mentor in practice. The second is a reflective case based assignment of 3000 words.
