This course is suitable for physiotherapists and other health professionals practicing in all areas of the health care system who want to upskill in the diagnosis and management of rheumatologic conditions. 

Why is Rheumatology Important?

Rheumatology conditions often masquerade as musculoskeletal disorders and this means they are likely to present to therapists. In fact, the closer to the start of a patients journey you are the more likely they are to present to you.  Research shows there is significant delays to diagnosis and many individuals have seen multiple professionals prior to their condition being recognised.
