Activity description

147838 - Musculoskeletal injuries and conditions

RACGP SA&NT

This interactive and practical hands on workshop will focus on head, shoulder and knee injuries and conditions. Diagnosis, examination techniques and management, including radiological interventions and physiotherapy, will be covered. Presenters include a GP, sports and exercise physician, radiologist, specialist MSK sonographer, and physiotherapist.

Relevance to General Practice

The assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries is a significant part of the workload of general practice. Almost one in five (18.4%) general practice encounters relate to musculoskeletal problems, and almost a quarter of these occur as a result of injury.
The GP has a critical role in the management of sports injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions, and should develop skills in taking a history specific for these and developing a comprehensive management plan.
