1.1 Diagnosis of Lower Limb Injuries: Practical Aspects
Level up your clinical reasoning and diagnostic skills
Assess people with lower limb injuries through an evidence-based framework
Do you sometimes struggle with differential diagnosis, and finding the right treatment for your clients? Our 2-day Course 1.1 offers an opportunity to learn and practice clinical reasoning frameworks using the perfect combination of the latest science and hands-on practical skills.
Sometimes, the wrong diagnosis can lead to the wrong treatment plan, and patients not getting better. Or worse, they may not even come back. Taking a deep dive into evidence-based differential diagnosis will help you:
✓ Learn the best clinical tests to include or exclude diagnostic hypotheses of lower limb injuries
✓ Master cutting-edge clinical reasoning skills and frameworks to assess injured athletes
✓ Develop clinical expertise in diagnosing complex cases and recommending appropriate treatments
✓ Position yourself as a reference for your colleagues and peers in the medical community
Streamline your assessment approach
This course is complementary to 1.0 Fundamentals of Running Injuries, and they can be done in no particular order. No prerequisites are required to take this course, other than being a healthcare professional.
Course 1.1 covers the essentials for diagnosing both traumatic and non-traumatic lower limb injuries.
Upon completing this two-day course, you will be fully equipped to combine the most appropriate tests to rule in or out the most common lower limb injuries in runners, athletes and active populations.
Seize this opportunity to hone your clinical reasoning skills with feedback from our expert clinicians through hands-on practice of more than 50 diagnostic tests and integrative case studies.
