Course Overview

This course is aimed at all clinicians who wish to develop a comprehensive understanding of the shoulder including instability, rotator cuff related pain, the stiff shoulder, sports injuries and neurological conditions. The course provides an opportunity for enquiring clinicians to explore current research findings and what this means for clinical practice. The course offers a mix of learning opportunities including lectures, discussion, reflective case studies and practical demonstrations of assessment and treatment techniques. Topics covered include assessment & diagnosis, including differential diagnosis, appropriate use of terminology, understanding pain, treatment and management including non-operative care, prehabilitation and post-operative rehabilitation. Throughout the course participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their current practice and consider how any new learning might be integrated for the benefit of themselves and their patients.

Learning Objectives

  1. To develop a research informed approach to the assessment & management of the shoulder
  2. To identify red flag pathology and manage appropriately
  3. To gain understanding of a simple self-managed framework for the assessment and management of the rotator cuff, the stiff shoulder and the unstable shoulder
  4. To develop understanding of differential diagnosis and relevant treatment pathways
  5. To recognise limitations in current knowledge and avenues for further research
  6. To further develop skills of reflective practice.
