This module is supported by a dedicated, regularly updated, student-centred website (using Moodle) offering online assessment (mock and real) news, online case studies, resources, web links, tutor access, online help (24/7), course information and other relevant material.
You are expected to have an identified mentor in your workplace that is able to support you with the development of the skills required for the soft tissue and joint injection therapy module.
We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision for you. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities as described on our website. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, or in response to COVID-19, we’ll let our applicants and students know as soon as possible.
Summative assessment consists of three components:
- record of ten musculoskeletal cases injected under supervision. There is no weighting for this component, but it must be passed.
- evidence of reflective practice and clinical reasoning in logbook format (this is intended to reflect your experience and should document key issues that have been considered whilst developing injection therapy skills) – weighting: 60 per cent.
- one case study (the role of injection therapy for one patient) – weighting: 40 per cent.
