Audience and Purpose

Primary care physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners are welcome to attend this two-day conference in musculoskeletal medicine.

This conference will provide a dynamic and clinically applicable musculoskeletal review of the latest updates on the most common orthopaedic injuries and disorders seen in a primary care setting. Hands-on, small group experiences will allow clinicians to have access to national and international experts in the field of orthopaedics and musculoskeletal medicine. Our goal of this educational activity is to provide all attendees with useful and high impact, evidence-based treatment and diagnostic recommendations in order to improve care.

Objectives

Upon completion, participation should be able to:

  • Expand history taking and physical exam skills when evaluating a patient with a musculoskeletal complaint
  • Identify additional testing and treatment of common orthopaedic conditions
  • Assess when to treat or when to refer
