The Core Skills in Musculoskeletal Care workshop focuses on developing the practical skills required in a typical 10-minute GP consultation.

The workshop provides a supportive environment for primary healthcare professionals to develop confidence and skills in the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients with MSK conditions.

The workshop is split into three main sections:

  • Low back pain and sciatica.
  • Lower limb (with a focus on the knee).
  • Upper limb (with a focus on the shoulder).

Key learning outcomes:

  1. Enjoy MSK consultations.
  2. Identify the prevalence of MSK conditions in primary care.
  3. Gain confidence in taking an effective history from an MSK patient, including eliciting red flags and psychosocial flags.
  4. Demonstrate understanding of examination of the MSK patient, including the discriminating features of the examination.
  5. Practice explanation of the diagnosis.
  6. Formulate a management plan, including appropriate investigations, referral, safety net and follow-up.
  7. Signpost patients to useful information.
  8. Learn techniques to signpost to supported self-management.
  9. Prepare for working with physiotherapist FCPs.

The trainer will go through an example examination demonstration and explanation, including a management plan.

You will receive a course handbook, a certificate upon completion, 7 CPD points for the face-to-face workshop and 8 CPD points for the digital workshop.

We will be running our next Core Skills in MSK Care digital course on 18 and 25 January and 1 and 8 February 2022 6.00 pm – 8.00 pm.
