Improving MSK Medicine & Rheumatology

Ends: Saturday, 24 November 2018 – 13:00

Special Joint Injection Session (Pre-booked)
with speakers Drs Alan Walker, Arthur Mone, Simon McGraw and Ms Kirsty Smith.

Following the previous interest in injection workshops using cadavers, this year the PCRS is running
workshops on Thursday morning and afternoon, the first day of the Annual Conference.
As well as the traditional formalin preparations, there will also be Thiel-embalmed specimens this time, which give a flexible and more life-like experience. The hand, wrist, and the elbow regions will be featured. Our team of PCRS presenters will be joined by Kirsty Smith, specialist hand physiotherapist, who will add her insights to the subject.
