Description

Registering:

Ever wonder how you're going to manage to fit in time to take a thorough history and examination in your OSCEs?

Join our clinically focused teaching on falls to help prepare for finals where we discuss history-taking, physical examinations, investigations, and how to differentiate between different causes of falls with practice case scenarios.

This teaching is not only aimed at Manchester medical students, anyone is welcome to join.

Register here: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEoc--gqjIrGtE3zp7t4rpnPVVRoKR9j5pY

Certificates and slides are given once the feedback form is completed.

Conditions we will cover include:

- Neuromuscular causes (e.g. stroke, transient ischaemic attack, deconditioning, joint instability)

- Sensory causes (e.g. visual impairment, labyrinthitis, vestibular neuronitis, and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)

- Neuropsychiatric and other neurologic causes (e.g. dementia, delirium, seizure, syncope, Parkinson's disease, intracranial haemorrhage)

- Other causes (e.g. polypharmacy, environmental hazards)

Learning objectives:

1. How to take a concise falls history and know when to ask what question

2. Physical examinations to consider and their relevant signs

3. Investigations for falls and when to consider them

4. Causes of falls and how do differentiate between them

5. Practice OSCE scenarios to apply knowledge of falls
