Course Description and Content
This course consists of 5 easy-to-follow video and text units covering the diagnosis and management of 5 musculoskeletal disorders. When you enrol in this course, you’ll have immediate access to material covering the diagnosis and management of patients presenting with a range of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction affecting the spine and the extremities. For each condition, you will be able to review and update your knowledge on the classic presentation, the causes, appropriate clinical evaluation and imaging as well as examples of red flags. In addition, suggestions for clinical management are provided. This is a self-paced program that provides a certificate upon completion. You will learn how a targeted clinical evaluation methodology with a problem-solving approach can be used to enhance your diagnostic accuracy and efficiency in practice. The material also includes free ready-to-use downloadable Practice Resources.
Free Downloadable Resources
To save you time and improve your clinical outcomes, we have included downloadable patient information and rehabilitation sheets for each condition which you can print out for your patients. We have found that the use of these materials increases compliance and improves referral rates. To help further improve patient outcomes, new patient referrals as well as facilitate greater interprofessional cooperation, each unit provides a range of proforma referral letters for you to use.
Red Flag Recognition and Patient Examination Videos
The course includes a set of questions that you can ask your patients to help identify any red flags that indicate the presence of serious underlying conditions. Relevant clinical examination videos are also included for you to sharpen your clinical skills.
Each course unit includes a short online multiple-choice quiz. When you have completed the learning material in a unit, you will be able to access its quiz.
