Spine Masterclass for GPs *NOW WAITLIST ONLY*

About this event

Join our panel of experts from Brisbane Clinical Neuroscience Centre for a spine masterclass .

  • Presentation, imaging and assessment for appropriate referral
  • Surgery, aftercare and follow up

Back pain in society is a major challenge facing health professionals, and is responsible for significant personal and societal burden.

Held in two parts over the course of the evening, this program will give GPs the knowledge and experience to support their patients with spine pain, so they may provide appropriate guidance on choices of care for spinal conditions requiring surgical intervention—the presentations, the surgical techniques used to treat them, and aftercare.
