PCRMM Webinar - Defining and Advancing Capabilities in the Assessment and Treatment of Pain and Fatigue in Inflammatory MSK Conditions

29th March 2022, 7 – 8.30pm

This compelling webinar is being given by Will Gregory, a Consultant Physiotherapist working for the Rheumatology Team at Salford Royal Hospital. 

Fatigue and pain are commonly presenting issues for those living with inflammatory MSK conditions. It can be challenging to unpick how much of each of these symptoms are down to the under-lying inflammatory processes and how much are due to living with a chronic health condition. Optimal pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment will be discussed in tandem with evidence-based assessment of pain and fatigue.

This is a rapidly developing area of Rheumatology and MSK practice across Primary and Secondary care. Recently released, peer-reviewed competency and capability documents for rheumatology practitioners, as well as NICE primary pain (NG193) and chronic fatigue (NG206), offer some guidance on the ways to support the person living with fatigue and/or pain, but these frameworks and guidance documents also demonstrate the areas where we are traditionally less well equipped or prepared to help with regards to these debilitating issues.
