Learning Hub in Musculoskeletal Medicine

Inner-vision musculoskeletal ultrasound scans are committed to continuing professional development (CPD), in order to stay abreast of emerging emerging research, up to date skills, knowledge and ensuring that we continuously provide current best practice for all our patients.

This also ensures we comply with the standards of competency expected by the Health and Care Professions Counci (HCPC), our governing body.

Inner-Vision have taken the opportunity to share examples of their CPD as we grow. A good resource for health professionals or those with an active interest in musculoskeletal health and wellbeing.

Knowledge is power!
