Mapped to Roadmap to Practice - FCP Knowledge, Skills & Attributes  

Are you a new FCP or APP who requests or would like to start requesting imaging and feel overwhelmed when looking at pelvic and hip imaging? What do they mean by normal? How do these results impact my patient? What if the X-Ray does not fit your patient clinically? We hope to answer all your questions by developing the necessary tools to systematically interpret these images and decipher this potentially complex area. 

Learning Objectives:

  • By the end of the course you will:
  • Know the indication for requesting basic imaging for the hip and pelvis
  • Have a structured method of looking at and interpreting images
  • Understand where imaging plays a role clinically and pit falls and advantages in the use of imaging and patient care
  • Have an understanding of what is normal and what is abnormal in these images
  • Have an idea of resources to help you develop your skills
  • Discuss how you interpret imaging, imaging reports and how you discuss this with your MSK patients

You will not:

  • Be legally qualified to request radiology
  • Be legally covered to interpret radiological examinations or write imaging reports
  • Know everything about imaging these anatomical areas 

 Facilitators: Neil Stewart MSc, BSc (Hons), MMACP, MCSP, HCPC and Amie Coombs MSc, BSc (Hons), MCSP, HCPC
