The Clinical Maze was developed due to some of the frustrations encountered when getting lost during the clinical conversation of an assessment. We have all been there and still are on a day to day basis with the clinical and human aspect often turning our differential diagnoses, index of suspicion and decision making into a Clinical Maze.
Clinical Conversations are influenced by a number of factors such as the history, pathology, comorbidities, pharmacology, flags, masqueraders, gut instinct, applied knowledge, time to assess and the human being themselves, to name but a few. Clinical presentations and humans are challenging to navigate in relation to the information they provide, the conversation we hear, how we apply knowledge acquired and engage joint decision making.
The Clinical Maze is a 1-day, fast paced, knowledge thirsty course designed to challenge, debate and further our clinical reasoning. Exploring your differential diagnosis and index of suspicion within MSK assessment, we will discuss, systems thinking, MSK and Non-MSK pathology whilst investigating the impact of inflammatory, vascular, neurological, orthopaedic and genetic influences. Gut instinct, masqueraders, red flags and triage will be discussed in context, with consideration for imaging, bloods, nerve conduction studies, injections, pharmacology and governance. First Contact Practitioners (FCP) will also be reviewed with the ever changing face of healthcare and the front line MSK Practitioner.
The Clinical Maze APP will be made available to all course participants. Check back soon for more updates and information
