    Well gefeliciteerd Purkje,..

    As you just did your exam I'd like to ask you (and others) another Q. about I.M. injections...

    - Do you or do you not massage the injection spot afterwards, or does it depent on the type of med's you're giving ?

    Thanks Matt,
    And succes met je verdere opleiding Purkje !
