Live webinar: Injections for Knee Osteoarthritis

$40.00

Clear

Description

Interest in the non-surgical management of knee osteoarthritis has grown exponentially over the past several decades. In particular, there has been a significant increase in the amount of research being conducted on injection-based treatments for the management of osteoarthritis. As a result, recent evidence has put into question the use of certain injection-based treatments for the management of knee osteoarthritis. This 1.5-hour live webinar will provide an overview of the evidence for injection-based treatments for knee osteoarthritis (corticosteroid, hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma and stem cell) and provide healthcare professionals with evidence-based recommendations to inform their clinical practice.

A recording of the webinar is available for purchase for $40 CAD.

Certificates of participation will be sent to the participants by email following the webinar.

* You can view the online course whenever you want, there is no deadline for completion.
