Melbourne Private Hospital invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting presented by Danny Low, Tina Toutzaris-Sabo and facilitated by Girish Nair.
Activity ID 245374.
The delayed diagnosis and treatment of work-related neck injuries can have a significant adverse impact on a patient’s physical health and mental well-being. This interactive activity will provide GPs with simple and effective diagnostic/treatment pathways to support timely management of patients, with a focus on early diagnosis and the identification of the most appropriate referral pathways. In addition, a Special Counsel will guide GPs through tips and pitfalls of preparing compliant reports and medical records, to support potential compensation claims relating to work related neck injuries.
Through this activity, GP's will be able to:
1. Discuss investigation techniques and imaging modalities for the diagnosis of work related neck pain
2. Recognise patients who may benefit from conservative intervention
3. Identify patients who require specialist opinion and possible surgical intervention
4. Discuss the professional and legal obligations in relation to history taking, medical reports and medical records for patients diagnosed with work-related neck pain
