B12 course introduction
The course covers B12 deficiency, pernicious anaemia, diagnosis, treatment and management. It also covers sign and symptoms of pernicious anaemia. This course is interactive and we include case studies and discuss issues regarding diagnostic testing.

We check the inclusion and exclusion criteria and identification of the appropriate patients. Students will get the opportunity to perform live practice with hands-on practical demonstrations of how to give b12 injections correctly and safely. We will cover administration techniques, where to give the injections and record keeping/documentation. We will discuss role and responsibilities and contraindications and precautions. The delegates will leave this course with an example of an individual protocol of Patient-Specific Direction (PSD) and a competency-based framework document to be used in practice. This course is very interactive.
