Back Pain Red Flags

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine


Norwest Private Hospital invites General Practitioners and Allied Health professionals to attend this live, online and interactive meeting with Dr Vanessa Perotti, Dr Fatemeh Sarmast and hosted by Suzanne Hall.

Activity ID: 220786

The aim of this webinar is to assist GPs to exclude the possibility of serious pathology in back pain presentations by debating red flags. The clinical guidelines consistently specify that imaging is only required in specific circumstances, and that there is a critical need for primary care clinicians to engage in thoughtful use of imaging procedures, and to consider alternative or adjunct methods for providing reassurance, in order to avoid or mitigate the potential negative impact of ‘anomalous’ findings.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Analyse if red flags are present in the patient’s presenting with back pain;
2. Apply a systematic approach to the management and
rehabilitation of chronic back pain;
3. Identify when the criteria for an immediate referral of patients is met.
