Credits

This three-credits-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 21 Mainpro+® credits.

FEE: $700 plus HST

You face many different presentations of musculoskeletal conditions in your day-to-day practice. Build on your diagnostic skills by learning the most current techniques so that you can continue to ensure optimal care and timely recovery for your patients.

The MSK Education: Joint Assessment Made Easy Workshop takes a systematic, hands-on approach to bring the latest musculoskeletal examination diagnostic assessment skills as they apply to the major joints of the body – shoulder, back, hip, knee and ankle. 

Learning Objectives

After active engagement in this program, participants will be better able to:

  • Apply patient-centred interviewing skills to acquire information needed to understand the mechanism involved in the injury
  • Identify the mechanisms that underlie common injuries of the major joints of the body by conducting an organized physical exam
  • Evaluate the results of specific physical tests to design the optimal management plan, including medical and other interdisciplinary health strategies and professionals as needed
  • Support patients and their families in making informed decisions about managing their health, including common musculoskeletal conditions

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.
