This course is the second iteration of the popular ‘Complete Upper Limb Course’. This new version champions high-quality, person-centred MSK care that looks to provide a framework that helps you move beyond joint-specific silos. With the judicious use and application of contemporary evidence, combined with real-world experience and a critical appreciation, this course will equip you ready to rise to the challenges of providing MSK care within the 21st Century. 

Aimed at the frontline clinician, this course will demonstrate how you can work with the person presenting in your clinic to achieve their goals whilst also encouraging you to critique course content and delivery to collectively advance thinking and consider new directions. This course will be interactive, fast-paced and readily applicable.

If you want a course that will spoon feed you, this isn’t the course for you. If you want a course that is open to being critiqued, encourages discussion and looks to develop new thinking and innovation for the benefit of all, then please sign up!
