Primary Care Orthopaedics
May 5–6, 2014 • Monday – Tuesday
Harvard Club, Main Club House • Boston, MA



COURSE DESCRIPTION

It has been estimated that one-third of symptoms reported to primary care physicians are musculoskeletal, and the vast majority of musculoskeletal disease is evaluated by a primary care, urgent care, or occupational medicine provider before patients are ever seen by a specialist. The goal of this course is to address the outpatient care of common musculoskeletal problems by primary care providers. The diagnosis and non-surgical management of musculoskeletal disorders will be covered in lectures, case discussions, and video demonstrations of examination and injection techniques. In addition, optional workshops in splinting and casting and interpretation of radiological studies will be available to participants. In participating in this course, we hope that our audience will be able to discuss the relationship between the anatomy and injury of specific anatomical areas; describe initial management of many orthopedic problems, both acute and chronic; and be more familiar with how to conduct and interpret musculoskeletal physical examinations.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the relationship between the anatomy and injury of specific anatomical areas
  • Summarize the initial management of many orthopaedic problems, acute and chronic
  • Improve the ability to perform a comprehensive musculoskeletal physical examination

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is for physicians, nurses, and physician’s assistants. Specifically, any health provider that provides first line care of musculoskeletal problems including internal medicine doctors, family practitioners, nurse practitioners, occupational medical specialists, physiatrists, and providers that work in emergency or urgent care settings.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 16.50 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
