Programme

Session 1

Assessment

In this session we will cover examination of the shoulder including limitations of current approaches and the potential for misinterpretation of the findings of the tests and scans we use. An assessment process that enables a clinical diagnosis of rotator cuff tendinopathy will be discussed, along with clinical application, while also recognising the limitations of our current understanding and areas of practice where further research is needed.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • To develop a research informed approach to the assessment of people with rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • To gain understanding of the practical application of a simple assessment framework for people with rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • To recognise limitations in current knowledge and avenues for further research
Session 2

Management

In this session we will take a research informed exploration of the treatment options for people with rotator cuff tendinopathy. We will challenge some current assumptions and consider how we can optimise the most promising interventions for this often resistant problem.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • To develop a research informed approach to management of people with rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • To gain understanding of the practical application of a self-managed exercise programme for people with rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • To recognise limitations in current knowledge and avenues for further research
Session 3

Pain & non-responders

In this session we will consider pain mechanisms in rotator cuff tendinopathy in tandem with thinking about why our treatments might, or might not work. This will lead into an analysis of the options to consider if our patients are not responding to treatment. This will include the role of corticosteroid injections, surgery and possible new treatment avenues.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • To explore current thinking in relation to pain and rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • To develop understanding of other treatment approaches, including surgery and corticosteroid injections, in non-responding patients
  • To develop skills of reflective practice

 

The price includes all 3 sessions, notes and quiz – 8 hours of CPD
