Joint and Musculoskeletal Pain Session



DATE: Saturday 11 August 2018. Please RVSP by Monday 6th August.

TIME: 8:30am – 4pm.

VENUE: Dr Chau Chak Wing Building, University of Technology Sydney.


BJC Health JAM Session was conceived to facilitate training in musculoskeletal disease for GPs and physiotherapists. It’s a shame that most get so little exposure to rheumatic disease even though these diseases commonly grace their treatment rooms. It’s important to understand both inflammatory disease as well as biomechanical and degenerative disease to further appreciate their interplay.

Delayed diagnoses and missed opportunities lead to failure to achieve lasting remission or to prevent recurrent, unnecessary suffering. These are real goals for us to help address. The aim is to provide information about a range of common musculoskeletal issues, clinical nuggets that can be used straight away, in treatment rooms on the following Monday.

BJC Health’s purpose is to change the lives of people with rheumatic disease to help them live & feel better. We believe this requires an integrated approach utilising the different expertise of a variety of health professionals. We hope to show our attendees how this Connected Care approach may benefit patients.
