Assessment & Management of the Rotator Cuff

11 June 2016

An evidence-based approach by Dr Chris Littlewood.

This course is aimed at all clinicians who wish to develop their understanding of the rotator cuff. It provides an opportunity for enquiring clinicians to explore current research findings and what this means for clinical practice. The course offers a mix of learning opportunities including lectures, discussion, reflective case study and practical demonstrations.

Topics covered include assessment and diagnosis, appropriate use of terminology, understanding pain, and treatment/management. Through the course participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their current practice and consider how any new learning might be integrated for the benefit of themselves and their patients.

Learning objectives:

  • To develop a critical but balanced approach to the assessment and management of the rotator cuff
  • To develop understanding of contemporary research and the implications for clinical practice
  • To gain understanding of a simple self-managed framework for the assessment and management of the rotator cuff
  • To recognize the limitations in current knowledge and avenues for further research
  • To further develop skills of reflective practice

Course cost/times: £100 for one day course. 09:30-16:00. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
