Level 2 – Team Training for BoNT-A

Overview

The Level 2 - Team Training course is designed for non-injecting team members (ie: office managers, receptionists, chair-side assistants, hygienists, medical office assistants, pharmacy assistants, etc.) to learn how to successfully integrate botulinum toxin services (ie: Dysport®/Botox®) into your office. The course includes an online session to learn offers both the theory and clinical skills required to provide the highest level of patient care for your botulinum toxin patients, as well as a hands-on session to practice the skills in a clinical setting. We find that the practices who are most successful with botulinum toxin are the ones that engage and cross-train their entire team.
