Back problems account for 30% of all sick leave in Sweden. Although the group of patients who are operated on for back problems in Sweden is a small part of the total number of patients, it accounts for 15-20% of the direct costs. People with back diseases make up a large part of the orthopedic patient group. An increasing concentration of patients with back diseases in larger and fewer clinics means that there is a greater need for further training than before.
The aim of the course is for the participant to learn initial treatment and investigation of patients with back diseases.
Results for the participant
Adequately assess patients with back diseases. Be able to do an adequate clinical examination. Be able to determine initial treatment. Be able to set up a plan for further investigation. Have knowledge of the treatment options that may be relevant.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
