Point-of-care ultrasound is an increasingly effective diagnostic tool in general practice, particularly in areas with limited access to specialist services. Now that portable ultrasound devices are becoming more affordable and efficient, GPs are developing a keen interest in the use and applications of point-of-care ultrasound.

Why attend?

This full-day, active learning module (ALM) helps increase understanding of the applications of point-of-care ultrasound in the diagnostic process. Experts will guide participants through the diverse applications of point-of-care ultrasound in primary care services. They will be introduced to basic techniques using advanced, high-end mobile ultrasound equipment provided by our sponsor, Sonosite.
