Certificate in Musculoskeletal medicine: Neck and upper back pain module
November 16 @ 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
This module aims to outline an efficient and careful approach to the assessment and management of patients with cervical and thoracic spinal pain seen in a General Practice, Pain Medicine or Rehabilitation setting. It aims to teach the clinical features that offer the best route to a specific diagnosis and will discuss current management options. It aims to cover the key elements of history taking and examination by providing registrants with the opportunity to practice examination tests on each other under supervision. Tests will include movement assessment, palpation of key surface anatomy landmarks in the spine and special tests to make an accurate diagnosis. There will also be a discussion of the benefits and limitations of spinal investigations and general and condition-specific management strategies for use in general practice. Small group case discussions and personal feedback on examination techniques will be used to enhance learning.
