Summary of Content: This module will examine and evaluate the theoretical principles underpinning contemporary practices in injection therapy. Emphasis will be on pharmacology, patient selection and the application of injection therapy for patients with upper limb benign musculoskeletal disorders. The conceptual basis of the therapy will be explored and a review of the literature undertaken based on documented research evidence. The practical focus will be on the enhancement and development of psychomotor, communication and presentation skills.
