I create these seminars as bespoke to the requirements of the organisers. Below is a list of topics that can be covered but is not exhaustive, its a case of selecting them as appropriate to then create the session.
The Courses can be created to fit 2 hour, half day (3.5 hours) or full day (6.5 hours) time frames. I am also available to speak at conferences as part of a wider program as required. The cost is on application due to the individual nature of the seminars.
– Overview of Rheumatology
– Specific condition recognition including but not limited to Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Axial Spondyloarthropathy and Connective Tissue Disorders
– Proceeding on recognition including onwards referrals
– Appropriate blood tests and interpretation
– Appropriate imaging
– Physiotherapy management of the conditions
– Education topics
– General Health
– Specific co-morbidity management
The seminars are supported by materials created by myself and other agencies, case studies and include links to the presentation slides and references.

Below are some course images and feedback received!
“I just wanted to feedback that it was really helpful that you focused so much on the identification of possible inflammatory/rheumatology-relevant symptoms – I had a patient in yesterday where everything pointed to an inflammatory spinal condition (classic 24 hour pattern, response to NSAIDs, likely enthesitis symptoms, better with activity worse with rest, etc). I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t have picked her up before the course as I probably wouldn’t have questioned her enough to get all of that! Also thanks for the blog on the blood testing – it was really helpful when I was writing back to the GP to remind me what to ask for.”
