An Introduction to Tibial Nerve Block and Verruca Needling
The aim of this one day session is to develop knowledge and understanding of tibial nerve block, pathophysiology of verrucae and current evidence base for verruca treatments. The first part of the day will be delivered in a class room setting followed by supervised, small group, interactive workshops, where delegates can practise tibial nerve block using a model system.
The latter part of the day will allow delegates to observe the full verruca needling procedure on patient volunteers.
