Wednesday 26th May, 7 – 8.30pm

For this webinar David Wilson and Krystian Dawiec who both work in primary care will look at some cases and conditions that may present in a First Contact practitioners Clinic. It is aimed at those clinicians that are new to primary care and the importance of other conditions that may present as musculoskeletal that have been care navigated onto the FCP diary. This short webinar will cover risk factors, signs and symptoms and referral pathway which is vital for the first contact practitioner. 
It is hoped that attendees will have raised awareness following the short webinar that they can use in a clinical setting. Once again as all webinars we will have a panel discussion to answer any questions.
