Paediatric MSK Presentations

12 Oct 2022
Versus Arthritis Theatre

This session will cover paediatric musculoskeletal presentations and will focus on supporting the management of common conditions in primary care, and when to consider referral on to specialist services.

Conditions covered will include normal variants of posture, growing pains, back pain, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. A case-based approach will include red flags in history and examination, management, and referral suggestions.

  • 1.Understand the different ways in which children with musculoskeletal problems present to primary care.
  • 2.Review the differences between adult and paediatric presentations and diagnoses.
  • 3.Discuss paediatric musculoskeletal diagnoses and differentiate between those that can be managed in primary care and those that need referral to specialist services.
