Abstract

This document describes the standards of good practice for pain specialists carrying out medial branch block (MBB) injections and radiofrequency denervation (RFD) as recommended by the British Pain Society (BPS) and the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (FPMRCA). This document also defines the facilities and important aspects of technique required in order to safely carry out these procedures. This document however, does not serve as critical analysis of published evidence.
