What you will learn

Course description: 

Virtual training is a facilitator-led, live online learning event that is delivered in a virtual environment. Participants can be geographically dispersed and also individually connected. Each learner uses their own computer or other compatible device. Virtual training is synchronous, meaning that participants are connected at the same time as the facilitator. Philips virtual training events typically range from 60-120 minutes in length with a maximum of 10 participants.

This socially engaging, purposefully-designed training allows participants the same quality education of an instructor-led classroom without the need or expense of traveling.

This Philips Clinical Education full-1 hour Virtual Instructor Led Training (vILT) course for sonographers, lab directors and managers is developed to meet the climbing need to educate the ultrasound community on the risks and implications of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Attendees will review: causes and risk factors for injury in sonography, the most common injuries and corresponding treatments, preventative workflow and workspace measures, therapeutic exercises and stretches, and the economic impact of work-related musculoskeletal injury on the sonographer and the hospital/facility.
