Low Back Pain Assessment and Management Training Course
 
Saturday, April 21, 2018
12:30 PM to 4:30 PM
$40 early bird registration by March 9th
or $60 if registered after March 9th
 
About the course:
The course is intended for primary care providers such as family physicians, nurse practitioners, physiotherapists, and chiropractors who provide care for people with low back pain.
 
The training course allows providers to confidently take the unknown out of managing low back pain patients. Course participants will learn algorithms for recognizing patterns of low back pain, allowing providers to improve patient outcomes and provide appropriate treatment and care for patients with low back pain. Providers will also learn how the Saskatchewan Spine Pathway works, and know when and how to refer to the two Spine Pathway Clinics, located in Regina and Saskatoon.
 
This program has been accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Saskatchewan Chapter for up to 8.25 Mainpro-M1 credits. Reciprocal recognition is available through the Saskatchewan Chiropractic Association.
