Paediatric MSK: Red flags and when to worry


Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is more common than you may realise; it affects the same proportion of children as type 1 diabetes or childhood epilepsy. In the absence of trauma or infection, it is the most likely cause of a single swollen joint lasting more than six weeks in children. This free webinar covers tips for examining children with joint pain, red flags in children with a limp, diagnosis of JIA and how to support children with this condition. The PEARL focuses on how to spot JIA and differentiate it from other causes of childhood pain, looking at how to take a good clinical history, pattern recognition and a focused examination.
