A unique opportunity to attend both the popular 'Red Flags, Serious Spinal Pathology & Systems Thinking' and 'Rheumatology in MSK: Recognition and Management'.

Course Aims

Day 1: This workshop focuses on the development of clinical reasoning in relation to the detection of non-musculoskeletal disorders presenting within the Musculoskeletal clinic through a perspective of 'Systems Thinking'. Andrew discusses the utility of Red Flags and how to incorporate these alongside 'Systems Thinking' to aid clinical reasoning.

  • To equip delegates with the signs and symptoms of common serious and masquerading pathology in relation to the spine.
  • To discuss and evaluate appropriate work up and pathways in relation to such conditions.
  • To develop the clinical reasoning of the delegates with a focus on 'Systems Thinking'.
  • To equip delegates with advanced assessment skills in relation to the Neurological and Vascular systems.
Learning Outcomes

Case studies are used to aid transfer of theory into practice with a focus on the development of Clinical Reasoning. There is a strong focus on 'Systems Thinking' to help clinicians identify those non- Musculoskeletal conditions that may be masquerading as such.

Day 2: This course will also cover the recognition of Rheumatology and Systemic Inflammatory Disorders; following recognition the appropriate immediate management, investigations and onward referral as well as the required Physiotherapy management of such presentations.

Who will Benefit

Day 1: Due to the changing nature of MSK service delivery, this course is suitable for all musculoskeletal practitioners. It will be particularly useful to first contact practitioners, aspiring ESP clinicians within MSK/Orthopaedic triage or experienced ESPs looking for an update.

Day 2: The course is suitable for all Physiotherapists in Musculoskeletal settings who are involved in the recognition, monitoring or management of Rheumatology disorders.
