SpineCare 2022 is a multidisciplinary webinar and clinical training program aiming to enhance evidence-based knowledge and pragmatic clinical skills of physiotherapists who treat people with spinal pain.
This course consists of ten, weekly, multidisciplinary webinars and five virtual/face-to-face sessions. Webinars are presented by Royal Melbourne Hospital neurosurgery, orthopaedics, rheumatology, pain management and physiotherapy disciplines. The virtual training sessions are led by Dr Robert Laird, specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist, coordinator of the RMH Rheumatology Back Assessment Clinic and Dr David Kelly, University of Melbourne, Lecturer in the Department of Physiotherapy.
