GPs are a frequent first point of call for orthopaedic overuse or trauma injuries. Attend this practical, hands-on seminar and improve your skills in identifying and treating common injuries of the shoulder, knee, foot and ankle. Learn from leading sports physicians, orthopaedic specialists and physiotherapists about accurate diagnosis and optimal management of your patients with musculoskeletal injuries.

  • Demonstrate how to take a comprehensive history and undertake a thorough clinical examination for common musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder, knee, foot and ankle.
  • Identify when imaging or other related investigations are required for differential diagnosis and to ensure patient safety.
  • Describe the various management strategies for common musculoskeletal conditions of the shoulder, knee, foot and ankle, from pain relief and self-management through to surgical intervention.
