During a typical GPs (or NPs) training, speciality based MSK is rare, and most of us have little ongoing support and education for dealing with even most of the common complaints. The evidence changes quickly and the thresholds to refer vary.
Lots of patients are labelled with sprains and OA and given a range of painkillers and physiotherapy. A lot of patients with chronic pain remain unidentified.
Could we do it better?
We want to help improve your approach to these patients, therefore we encourage you to attend the New Musculoskeletal Course by our partners 'Medical Skills Courses' and their very talented faculty of tutors
They won't give you 1000 PowerPoint slides and 50 eponymous tests for the shoulder.
They won't confuse you with rare and wonderful MSK pathology.
In a tried and tested format of short snappy vignettes, case studies and live demonstrations, they will cover, literally from head to toe, all of the MSK complaints you are likely to encounter, including:
- Chronic Pain
- Specific Joint Pain (e.g. Shoulder, Hip, etc.)
- Red flags
- Back pain
- Inflammatory Conditions
- Tricky Cases
