A half-day course to teach the theoretical and practical skills for performing diagnostic paracentesis and lumbar puncture, located at the Trust HQ & Education Centre, Pinderfields.
The course includes lectures and practical demonstrations of both diagnostic paracentesis and lumbar puncture. Candidates then have the opportunity to practice the procedures in a small group environment. Finally, the skill is formally assessed in a suitable format to generate a simulated direct observation of practical skills assessment (DOPS).
