Advanced Practice: The Knee - Putting the Puzzle Together

Venue: BMI Mt Alvernia Hospital (Physio Dept), Harvey Road, Guildford, GU1 3LX

Saturday 6th April, 9am-5pm (0845 registration)

Cost: £120 MACP Members, £140 Non-Members

This fast paced, information-packed one day interactive course covers the more and less common knee conditions seen in advanced practice (extended scope MSK practitioner roles). It is designed for new advanced musculoskeletal practitioners wanting to build their competencies and expand their knowledge and existing specialists who want to consolidate knowledge with an opportunity for case and evidence based peer review. If you are interested in moving into an advanced role in the knee and have already been on the MACP imaging course this may also be for you if you are ready for a challenging day!

This course is case based and covers the evidence, clinical reasoning (including differential diagnosis, imaging, other diagnostic work up), best practice management, masqueraders, shared decision making and indication/timing for onward referral in the modern healthcare environment.

Overview of learning from case based scenarios:
Learn about and discuss best practice and evidence base for directing/carry out conservative care in a physiotherapy specialist role for example:
- The myths and truths surrounding conditions such as OA, degenerative meniscal tears, acute injuries, locked knees, swollen knees
- Considering and using injections
- How to integrate imaging and other diagnostic tests into your clinical reasoning to improve patient assessment and management (please note the MACP imaging course covers the basics of image requesting and use in MSK roles and this course will complement that but is not a pre-requisite
- The pitfalls of imaging and diagnostics, how we interpret and discuss imaging with patients and other professionals
- Differential diagnosis of knee conditions such as:
- Masqueraders: osteosarcoma, proliferative synovial conditions, bone tumours, others
- Inflammatory conditions: how to spot them in MSK roles and initial work up
- Onward referral but considering the evidence base rather than traditional pathways on outcomes as well as appropriate work up
