This short course is targeted at primary care clinicians looking to improve their assessment of musculoskeletal presentations in children and young people.

Course Description

Musculoskeletal presentations such as limp, joint pain or swelling are common in primary care.  This short course will provide you with practical tips to support your assessment and direct further management of children and young people. 

Course topics include:

  • The challenge for GPs
  • Case 1 - a 3 year old limping child
  • Case 2 - 13 year old with multiple joint pains
  • Case 3 - 3 year old with night pains
  • Case 4 - 12 year old with knee pain

The course will take around 40 minutes to complete.  You will be able to download a Certificate of Completion upon finishing the course.  

Additional eModules from the PMM team include 'The Child with Fever' targeting knowledge and skills needed by paediatricians, and 'Introduction to Paediatric Musculoskeletal Clinical Skills' targeting medical students and all clinicians that see children and young people.

Coming soon - a module on 'The Child with Gait Problems', targeting physiotherapists.
