TOPIC 1: Practical Points for the Musculoskeletal Exam for the Primary Care Provider.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: EBM, COMP

  1. Perform an evidence based screening exam to detect evidence of an underlying arthritis in an asymptomatic patient.
  2. Apply evidence based maneuvers in the shoulder exam to detect an impingement syndrome and adhesive capsulitis.
  3. Relate the location of pain and the earliest exam changes indicative of arthritis of the hip.
  4. Employ the most sensitive test to detect effusions of the knee joint.

TOPIC 2: Approach to Stress Fractures.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: GL, COMP

  1. Describe the stress fractures that can occur in various bones of athletes and athletic individuals.
  2. Determine the rationale behind differing treatment approaches to preventing and treating stress fractures, such as the ACSM and AOSSM Guidelines.
  3. Develop rehabilitation points and advice for athletic or active individuals presenting with stress injuries and fractures, with consideration of the specific bone or bones involved.
  4. Assess and order laboratory and imaging studies to assist in the diagnosis and prognostication of stress injuries and fractures as per the ACR Guidelines.

TOPIC 3: Low Back Pain in the ED: What We Know, What We Think We Know, and What We Don’t Know.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: EBM, COMP

  1. Apply an evidence-based approach to the evaluation of non-traumatic back pain.
  2. Differentiate the “red flags” that should heighten the suspicion for serious pathology in the evaluation of back pain.
  3. Assess and differentiate both effective as well as disproved therapies in the treatment of back pain using the Cochrane Database.
  4. Specify potential pitfalls in the treatment and disposition of low back pain.
