Description

This course is ideal for any healthcare professional looking to expand their knowledge around the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management of musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain, particularly as these now use up to a third of appointments in primary care, and contribute a significant number of attendances to secondary and community care.

Led by an experienced panel of General Practitioners, Hospital Specialists and Extended Scope Physiotherapists, this course is suitable for all that consult on Musculoskeletal conditions.

In a tried and tested format of short snappy vignettes, case studies and live demonstrations, we will cover, literally from head to toe, all of the common MSK complaints and conditions that you are likely to see.

Our MSK Education team is led by Mr Mike Whitehouse, a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Senior Lecturer in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Bristol. For over a decade Mike has been internationally respected as an MSK educationalists for Students, GPs and Specialists. He is well published and is a firm believer in reducing unnecessary interventions (both diagnostic and surgical.)

This MSK Course aims to inform and inspire, and will give you the tools to provide safe, effective and evidence based care for your patients.
