Effectively manage common musculoskeletal problems in general practice

Musculoskeletal problems constitute a substantial ever-growing burden on society, on the medical services and all personnel dealing with these conditions. Bone and joint disorders account for more than half of all chronic conditions in people over 50 years and the most common cause of severe, long‐term pain and disability. In Ireland, the average GP practice consists of almost 20% musculoskeletal problems.

This course is designed for GPs to provide a sound understanding of musculoskeletal soft tissue dysfunction as it presents in the surgery. It also aims to further prepare the GP in recognising, assessing and managing these disorders.

The course is run jointly by the Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP) and the Faculty of Sports & Exercise Medicine (FSEM) RCPI & RCSI

All GPs who wish to increase their learning in musculoskeletal problems; GPs in training who wish to augment their training in this area of interest
