By the end of the session you should be able to:

  • Describe the features of a physically unwell patient
  • Discuss the features of systemic illness in musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions
  • Outline who you would ask for advice if unsure
  • Describe what frailty is and how to identify people who are living with frailty, or those at most risk of developing frailty
Instructors / Speakers
Greg Warner,
Orthopaedic Physician

General Practice was my first love in medicine and I spent 26 years as a partner in a practice in Romsey, Hampshire. A career in Sports Medicine and MSK grew alongside this and eventually flourished in a large MSK intermediate care service (Orthopaedic Choice) in West Hampshire. I have managed to keep both elements of my career going and to develop an educational role in MSK for GPs, trainees, medical students and others.
