4th April 2019 – Update Course

5th & 6th April 2019 – Basic Course

Dublin

The Integrated Care Programme for Children, in association with Dr Sally Scott FRCR, is pleased to announce dates in Dublin for a 1 day update course and a 2 day basic course on ultrasound in the diagnosis and management of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH).

The course will take place in the pillar Room, Rotunda Hospital, Dublin 1 and will follow the same format as the very popular course organised by Dr Scott in England.

UPDATE COURSE IN INFANT HIP ULTRASOUND

 

The Update Course will be open to those who have previously attended a Graf Basic Course in Infant Hip Ultrasound.

The purpose of the Update Course is: -

  1. To ensure that participants are competent and confident in the technique of hip sonography.
  2. To sort out any problems that participants are encountering.
  3. To discuss in greater depth the clinical and ultrasonic management of children with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip.

Delegates are encouraged to bring with them a selection of their own images from both straightforward and problem cases.

There is flexibility to tailor the course to the needs of the participants and it will be equally suitable for radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons, paediatricians, physiotherapists, and senior sonographers.

 

BASIC COURSE IN INFANT HIP ULTRASOUND

This course is especially beneficial when multidisciplinary teams working with infant hip dysplasia attend. It is suitable for radiologists, sonographers, orthopaedic surgeons, paediatricians, and physiotherapists.

The aim is to give participants a thorough understanding of the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and management of developmental dysplasia of the hip (previously known as congenital dislocation of the hip).

The course is both theoretical, covering the pathology, diagnosis and management of DDH, and practical, with “hands on” ultrasound sessions. Management based on ultrasound findings will be discussed. Questions such as the choice of equipment and how to set up an ultrasound service will be addressed.
