Tutor – Jack March


An opportunity to attend the popular Recognising Rheumatology 1 day course

Masqueraders in the Musculoskeletal setting are relatively rare on an individual level, the numbers of these presenting to Physiotherapists are increasing as they take on higher responsibility roles and the rate of comorbidities in the population increases.

This combination means it is of vital importance that Physios understand how these conditions present, their associated risk factors and how to manage and onwardly refer.

In this course delegates will learn how to differentiate Rheumatology masqueraders in the musculoskeletal setting, how to investigate and onwardly refer appropriately. On the full day course we expand the number of conditions and also discuss the most effective management strategies.


All attendees gain access to the attendee section of the Rheumatology.Physio website which contains presentation, case study materials and references.

All attendees also get a lifetime discount to the shop which contains supplementary clinical practice resources such as “At A Glance Guides” and an audiobook.
