Clinical Anatomy of Lumbar Puncture
This three-hour CME webinar includes a lecture to present the clinical anatomy and evidence-based approaches to Lumbar Puncture, followed by three interactive sessions. Participants will 1) observe and identify the relevant anatomy via prosection, 3D virtual dissection of the “Visible Human,” and “Draw-It-To-Know-It” exercises; 2) observe the LP procedure on a simulated model and on a soft-embalmed cadaveric donor using ultrasound guidance; and 3) engage in a Problem-Based Learning case. A pre-test is required and multiple-choice quizzes must be completed after each session in order to proceed to the next session.
