Overview

This live course will include lectures, hands-on workshops, interactive question and answer sessions, that aim to provide an overview of pediatric musculoskeletal conditions commonly encountered by Primary Care Providers. In addition, participants can look forward to learning about our multidisciplinary approach to managing pediatric musculoskeletal conditions through evidence-based practices.

Target Audience
This conference is tailored towards healthcare providers who care for children and adolescents, including primary care physicians (pediatricians or family physicians), advanced practice providers (physician assistants or nurse practitioners), nurses, physical or occupational therapists, and orthotists and prosthetists.

Objectives

An attendee completing this course will be able to apply acquired skills and strategies to:

  1. Identify musculoskeletal conditions (spine, hip, lower extremity, sports, trauma) that are unique to the pediatric population.
  2. Discuss indications for diagnostic and therapeutic modalities and clinical features that should prompt referral to specialists.
  3. Review multidisciplinary approach to managing pediatric patients presenting musculoskeletal complaints that may be from rheumatologic or neurologic conditions.
  4. Perform focused MSK physical exam.
  5. Demonstrate understanding of cast/splint and postoperative care.
  6. Recognize common orthoses used in primary care
