Description

Your caseload is rapidly expanding as more patients skip the physician and go to the direct access route.

But so is your liability, and the risk for your patients – unless you’re up to speed on medical screening and differential diagnosis.

From meningitis to cardiovascular disease, many medical pathologies mimic musculoskeletal conditions, and in a busy clinical setting they’re easy to miss without consistent, accurate screening and sound clinical reasoning.

Watch this recording and learn a step-by-step medical screening model that helps you protect your patients and your practice.

Upgrade your diagnostic accuracy and clinical reasoning skills as you review a series of interactive case studies, paying special attention to past medical history, risk factor assessment, clinical presentation, and associated signs and symptoms.

By the end of the recording, you’ll be able to easily identify the signs of sinister medical pathologies and confidently determine when to refer patients for medical care.

Become the go-to resource in your facility for medical screening, and build referrals as the therapist physicians trust!
