EM193: CATANIA - Medical Screening & Differential Diagnosis For Physiotherapists

This 2-day course is comprised of lectures, case study presentations, group discussions and practical sessions to enable you to integrate medical screening procedures into your physiotherapy practice.

The course will offer a comprehensive look at common neuromusculoskeletal and non-neuromusculoskeletal pathologies which require screening by Physiotherapists in the modern healthcare systems.

Evidence and procedures to make sound clinical judgements regarding medical screening and differential diagnosis to differentiate safely and efficiently between neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions and serious pathology will be presented, to help the Physiotherapist decide when to treat or when to refer onto another profession.

Medical screening and differential diagnosis are essential components of autonomous practice and are within the scope of the Physiotherapy profession.
