GPs across the West Midlands are invited to a free shoulder joint injection and examination workshop, to be delivered by the Midland Orthopaedic Practice and held from 7 - 8.30pm.

The workshop specifically for GPs will offer one and a half hours of learning time, with confirmation issued on attendance.

The format of the evening will include a brief lecture/overview of indications for injecting the shoulder, followed by practical techniques using an electronic shoulder model, giving attendees the opportunity to practice their injection technique.

The workshop is suitable for GPs who currently have no shoulder or any joint injections experience and are looking to perform in general practice, as well as being suitable for GPs who currently inject and are seeking to refresh their injection technique.
