Joint, bone and soft tissue challenges – Melbourne

The diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions and autoimmune diseases still pose challenges in general practice.

This MJA CPD clinical meeting will address the major challenges and new treatment guidelines to the management of these conditions in general practice.

Rheumatologists see patients with a great spectrum of conditions like Arthritis and other musculoskeletal illnesses affecting joints, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. GPs remain to be the first contact point for patients, initiating investigations, tests, referrals and ongoing management.

Many of the treatments will have an effect on the rest of the body i.e. eyes, skin, internal organs and nervous system which highlights the need to understand the implications of current treatments.

Join the MJA for this active learning day with experts in the filed presenting on some of the more challenging areas in Rheumatology:

  • Pain that affects pelvic girdle and lower back
  • Generalised pain- Fibromyalgia
  • Treatment of autoimmune diseases such as Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Biologic therapies – everything a GP needs to know
  • An evidence-based approach to investigations and imaging in rheumatology
  • Treatment controversies – Surgical or manual interventions i.e. arthroscopy; spinal fusion and physical therapies

This module is accredited for RACGP QI&CPD 40 Category 1 points and 30 ACRRM PDP points.  Other colleges are able to self-report the 6 hours of structured learning with the Certificate of Attendance issued after the Seminar.
