Sports Solutions: Managing the Injuries
With the winter sport season beginning and potential for 'weekend warrior' presentations in your practice increasing, this workshop is very timely indeed.
Sports solutions will workshop common injuries caused by overuse, direct impact, strains and sprains and consider how managing a sports injury correctly minimises the damage and maximises the chances of a full recovery.
A range of effective sports injury treatment scenarios will be explored.
Palliative Care ALM
The provision of palliative care is a significant challenge for general practice. Care setting, stage of illness and patient preferences all add to the complexity of effective management.
This workshop aims to empower GPs to confidently provide optimal palliative care and will consider:
- Management of pain
- Management of other symptoms
- Advanced Care Directive and medical goals of care
- End of life conversations
- Availability of resources, referral pathways and support networks.
