Musculoskeletal Medicine for Primary Care Providers 2019
Musculoskeletal Medicine for Primary Care Providers is organized by Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) and will be held on Sep 14, 2019 at Tilghman Auditorium, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.
Primary Care Physicians, Community Physicians, Family Practitioners, Nurses, Physical and Occupational Therapists.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The goal of this course is to educate primary care providers to enhance basic skills and competencies in evaluation and management of common ambulatory musculoskeletal (MSK) complaints. In this course, our approach is multi-disciplinary and comprehensive, with speakers from rheumatology, orthopedics, spine, sports medicine, physical and occupational therapy. Hence, we aim to bring together expertise from different fields of MSK medicine to focus on 1) what is new in this field, 2) how to improve patient care and clinical outcomes and 3) how to enhance provider skills and confidence.
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
• Differentiate inflammatory from non-inflammatory joint and back complaints.
• Design key diagnostic workup of MSK conditions including need for rheumatology, orthopedics, or sports medicine referral
