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 joint and musculoskeletal disorders to help prepare for finals where we discuss history-taking, physical examinations, investigations, and how to differentiate between different causes of joint and musculoskeletal disorders 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/tJcld-uopzIiGdVwcEW-Ky6pC_mNPklB-B9a

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

Conditions we will cover:

- Rheumatological autoantibodies (e.g. anti-nuclear antibody, rheumatoid factor etc.)

- Joint disorders (e.g. osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, septic arthritis, gout/pseudogout, ankylosing spondylitis)

- Systemic and connective tissue disorders (e.g. systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), polymyalgia rheumatica, polymyositis, dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis, behçet’s syndrome, bjögren’s syndrome, antiphospholipid syndrome)

- Vasculitis (e.g. giant cell arteritis, takayasu’s arteritis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, Henoch-Schönlein purpura)

- Bone disorders (e.g. osteomalacia, osteoporosis, Paget’s disease of bone)

Learning objectives:

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

2. Physical examinations to consider and their relevant signs

3. Investigations for musculoskeletal disorders and when to consider them

4. Antibodies in Rheumatology and their associated disorders

5. Causes of musculoskeletal disorders and how do differentiate between them

6. Practice OSCE scenarios to apply knowledge of musculoskeletal disorders

Summary

This session focuses on how to deal with patients presenting with joint pain and stiffness, including asking the right questions in history-taking, performing relevant physical examinations, when to order what test, and how to differentiate between their causes. Conditions we will cover include: - Rheumatological autoantibodies (e.g. anti-nuclear antibody, rheumatoid factor etc.) - Joint disorders (e.g. osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, septic arthritis, gout/pseudogout, ankylosing spondylitis) - Systemic and connective tissue disorders (e.g. systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), polymyalgia rheumatica, polymyositis, dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis, behçet’s syndrome, bjögren’s syndrome, antiphospholipid syndrome) - Vasculitis (e.g. giant cell arteritis, takayasu’s arteritis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, Henoch-Schönlein purpura) - Bone disorders (e.g. osteomalacia, osteoporosis, Paget’s disease of bone)
