Spinal Masqueraders Expanded

Following on from the highly regarded Spinal Masqueraders Study Day, the MACP have developed a further stand-alone course designed to enhance awareness and clinical reasoning in the management of non-musculoskeletal causes of back and radiating leg pain.

Spinal Masqueraders: Expanded covers new issues not covered on the original study day. Developed from delegate feedback and evolving evidence, attendance on the original Masqueraders Study Day is not a prerequisite to this course. Knowledge and skills gained from the first course will however be further enhanced and new skills accrued.

This course covers in depth the topics of:

  • Cauda Equina Syndrome
  • Pelvic Masqueraders
  • Visceral Masqueraders
  • Infection Masqueraders
  • PLUS Clinical case studies

Content is designed to develop delegates clinical reasoning skills and to maximize the integration of newly acquired knowledge into everyday clinical practice. The day is designed for those working in Advanced Practitioner roles, First Contact Practitioner roles or those interested in progression into these fields.
