Who should attend
The seminar series is for physicians who are interested in learning or reviewing the application of radiofrequency and pulsed radiofrequency procedures for chronic pain conditions in the framework of a structured education.
The key objective of the course is to provide doctors with a comprehensive knowledge on the application of radiofrequency and pulsed radiofrequency procedures for chronic pain conditions. This structured E-Learning program will provide participants with skills that might be implemented in their own practice.
The program is divided into six main seminars, each consisting of two to five E-Learning sessions that go for 90 minutes. Each 90 minute session includes:
• 30 minutes of presentation
• 20-40 minutes live patient procedure demonstration and
At the end of the E-Learning seminars participants will have a good understanding of the relevant anatomy, indications, possible complications, and ways to avoid them. They will also learn about the available evidence and safe techniques to perform the various procedures.
Limitation: With the lack of hands-on training, physicians must use caution to stay within their comfort zone to ensure patient safety.
