Introduction to the wrist and hand

The wrist and hand pose a challenge for many therapists in musculoskeletal practice. They are complex anatomically and functionally, and unless you are treating them regularly it is difficult to feel confident with clinical examination, diagnosis, radiology interpretation and management. This is an intensive 1-day course to build your expertise and confidence when dealing with a wide range of wrist and hand injuries and pain problems. It is very hands-on, including practical skills for clinical examination, and some basic splinting techniques. Your presenter, Ian Dowley, has worked exclusively with the wrist and hand for over 20 years in both public and private practice.

Male and Female Transperineal Ultrasound Practical Lecture

An evening lecture providing the opportunity to learn and reconnect after a difficult year. Irmina Nahon has a wealth of experience in WMPH and we are thrilled to have her present on the use of real time ultrasound to assess the pelvic floor using a transperineal approach. Topics covered will include a background on real time ultrasound, evidence for its use and practical aspects of using this technique including patient set up, consent and infection control guidelines. It will include a live demonstration on both a male and female volunteer to assist with participants in recognising correct patterns of movement and troubleshooting any common mistakes with transperineal real time ultrasound.

Please note participants will not be performing the technique themselves.

To comply with COVID restrictions participants will need to bring their own face mask and practice hand hygiene upon entering the room. Partipants are asked to please not attend if they are in any way unwell or have travelled to any hot spots 14 days prior to the event
