Online Course Information

Rheumatology.Physio Online Course

Target Audience – All therapists working in Musculoskeletal practice such as Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Sports Rehabilitators

Background

Jack has run many face to face courses over the last 5 years, to increase access and flexibility for attendees and decrease the environmental impact of travelling he has created an online version which can be completed at your own pace and without waiting for a course near you! To replicate the lost interactivity of the course, Jack will run zoom meetings every 2 months for discussion and further learning.

Description

Rheumatology conditions often masquerade as musculoskeletal disorders and this means they are likely to present to therapists. In fact, the closer to the start of a patients journey you are the more likely they are to present to you. Research shows there is significant delays to diagnosis and many individuals have seen multiple professionals prior to their condition being recognised.

This course will cover the signs, symptoms and associated conditions that it is necessary to screen for to ensure you don’t miss these presentations. It also covers the pathophysiology, required investigations and interpretation to ensure you are practicing at the highest level.

Included is the management of these conditions from a therapist viewpoint, this will enable you to manage the patients appropriately either directly or as a guiding referrer.

Once accessed all attendees will be invited to bimonthly zoom meetings with Jack that will cover case studies, answer questions and provide updates to learning. These will be exclusive to online course attendees.
