Taking a targeted history and performing an organized, efficient physical examination are critical components of correctly diagnosing joint injury and managing musculoskeletal conditions. Health practitioners can be faced with a variety of presentations each day in their practices. Keeping on top of the most current and advanced diagnostic techniques is critical to positive patient outcomes and timely recovery. Don't miss out on this hands-on comprehensive Group Learning program, which will bring your diagnostic skills to the current state of practice. Assessments covered include shoulder, back, hip, knee and ankle.

Learning Objectives

  • After active engagement in this program, participants will be better able to:
  • Use patient-centered interviewing skills to effectively gather relevant biomedical and psychosocial information regarding the mechanism of the relevant injury
  • Perform an organized and efficient physical exam of the major joints of the musculoskeletal system to identify and differentiate between the various mechanisms of common musculoskeletal injuries
  • Interpret the findings from common physical tests to determine the optimal management plan incorporating medical approaches and referrals to the most appropriate interdisciplinary health professionals
  • Discuss an approach to the management of common musculoskeletal conditions seen in practice using communications skills and strategies that help patients and their families make informed decisions regarding their health

Requirements

All participants are required to wear loose fitting clothing because participants will practice examination techniques with each other for the practical portion of this workshop. Pants that are loose enough to pull up over the knee are appropriate.

You must also complete all Pre-Course and Post-Course activities and attend the full workshop to receive the associated Group Learning credits for the program.
