Schedule and Other Important Information (if applicable)

This course is confirmed. The principles of MDT and how they apply in the context of the biopsychosocial framework of managing patients with cervical and thoracic pain and functional limitations will be a key focus. The participants will explore and extensively practice the MDT assessment, classification and management process through lectures, workshops, discussions, and patient demonstrations. Indications for the use of clinician procedures will also be discussed and the procedures demonstrated and practiced. Subgroups not fulfilling the criteria of the MDT syndromes are introduced and the basis for their differential diagnosis is outlined. Approximately4 or 5 legitimate patients, selected by the hosting clinic, will be assessed and treated by the instructor during this course. The patients will return for a follow-up appointment before the end of the course.
