Learner Outcomes

This course covers all aspects (including pharmacology, indications, contraindications, complications, related emergencies, injection techniques, current/evidence based advancements and recommendations) of all the injectables currently listed on the Ontario Chiropody Drug List, and is intended to provide a solid foundation for the use of other injectables in the future. While emphasis will be directed towards local anaesthetic and corticosteroid agents, this course will also examine the current role of prolotherapy agents, sclerotherapy agents, and articular lubricants in clinical practice.

The course consists of both didactic (online) and practical (Michener Lab Facilities) components. It is designed to allow learners to progress through the didactic online modules at their own pace, and then have the opportunity to apply, practice, and master the concepts learned during the online component in the laboratory sessions.

This course is intended to be comprehensive in nature. It is suitable for those without previous exposure to this material or experience in these techniques, while also being an excellent review for those who would like to update their skills or who desire a refresher on these concepts.
