119112 - Bone and Orthopaedic Issues in Seen in General Practice

  • : Online


This course is a comprehensive study of essential topics in orthopaedic surgery. The course includes case-based lectures on topics like acute and chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system in all age groups, diagnosis and management of congenital, developmental, inflammatory and other conditions affecting the limbs and the spine. There are 14 lectures contained in this course

Relevance to General Practice

This course focuses on the bulk of orthopaedics in general practice. While investigative and management trends are constantly changing, the ability to keep up with these is not always possible at the primary care level for GPs. There is a clear need for continuing education in regards to these developments and their application in day to day practice, with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of care we deliver.

Learning outcomes
  • Explain the science behind bone and cartilage issues including composition, injury and repair.
  • Describe biomechanics and the effects on biological systems (joint mechanics and stability)
  • Provide an advanced understanding for experienced clinicians of Joint Arthroplasty, Chondral Procedures, Arthroscopy and Reconstruction,
  • Emphasize the healing / stress tolerances post-operatively that underpins rehabilitation timeframes
  • Elaborate on the ability to make a more informed decision on relevant investigations that will contribute value to management of bone and orthopaedic conditions
