Course summary

About the course

This course is aimed at registered podiatrists, physiotherapists and nurses, who wish to extend their scope of practice into the field of injection therapies in the foot and ankle. It may be of particular interest to those practitioners who have a keen interest in musculoskeletal (MSK) or surgical practice. It provides you with the opportunity to advance your practice using the theoretical knowledge which underpins the clinical practice of injection therapies in the foot and ankle.

  • You will be encouraged to develop an understanding of the principles and actions of the drugs available and techniques used in their administration.
  • This theoretical course provides you with an opportunity to develop basic skills in undertaking therapeutic injections.
  • It provides you with an arena to practice injection techniques on models in a supervised environment.
  • Upon successful completion of this course, podiatrist must complete a period of mentored clinical practice prior to using the techniques in practice. This is a requirement of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.

Please note that the mentored clinical practice is not included within this course and must be undertaken under the supervision of a pre-arranged mentor. The University will support the supervised clinical practice in order to help you meet the requirements, but it is your responsibility to obtain a suitable mentor for the supervising roll. The mentor must be approved by the University

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a series of lectures, tutorials and workshops. Your studies will be supported by the University’s virtual learning environment.

Assessment will include a multiple choice examination paper and an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Your module specification/course handbook will provide full details of the assessment criteria applying to your course.

Career support

Advance your practice through gaining the theoretical knowledge which underpins the clinical practice of injection therapies in the foot and ankle, and through successful completion of the mentored clinical practice gain the competencies required to undertake injection therapies.
