FIREFLY MSK WORKSHOP
Workshop Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
The Firefly MSK Workshop is a one-day theoretical and practical CPD event, designed with the aim of up-skilling and building clinical knowledge. The event is created to provide podiatrists with the confidence to assess, diagnose and treat a range of MSK pathologies.
In many cases, a clinician’s undergraduate degree and experience working in different clinical environments provide a core understanding of anatomy, basic understanding of MSK and knowledge of common pathologies. This workshop aims to build on these core elements, enhancing your knowledge and confidence.
