Event Overview

Join us for this FREE webinar – the first of three broadcast live to improve and establish support in primary care for managing osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a serious and painful form of arthritis and can affect any joint. As the most common type of arthritis in the UK, severity can vary greatly. This webinar will focus on identifying early signs of osteoarthritis within general practice and the key pathways of care for your patients. As a long-term condition that can not be cured, a number of treatments can reduce the symptoms. GPs and clinical experts will discuss how they identify these symptoms, the causes, and the holistic approach taken when assessing and managing effective treatment of osteoarthritis.

This webinar is recorded live and the session will be available for delegates to access freely for 6 months once uploaded to our e-Learning platform. *Please note we endeavour to upload content as quickly as possible after the conference, but it typically takes 1-2 weeks.

Topics Include:

  • Presentation and diagnosis of osteoarthritis in general practice
  • Initial management (NICE core treatments e.g. information provision)
  • Activity & exercise (incl. physiotherapy, muscle strengthening)
  • Weight management,
  • Pathways of care
  • Pain management

This webinar will be Chaired by Dr. Anish Kotecha, GP Partner, and RCGP SE Wales Faculty Education Lead.
