Core Competencies in Managing Adult Patients Post Common Lower Limb Orthopaedic Surgeries


Based on recent research findings and guided by clinical reasoning, this workshop will follow the patient's care continuum from acute to later rehabilitation stages for post common lower limb orthopaedic surgeries such as total knee replacements, hip arthroplasty and ankle and foot surgeries.

Date / Time
2 to 3 August 2024
2 days

The workshop aims to equip participants with essential and updated knowledge, boost participants' confidence in conducting objective assessments, mobilise patients effectively with appropriate orthotics and walking aids prescription, and subsequently choosing suitable exercise therapy progressions for patients throughout the care continuum. This is a streamlined workshop that is suitable for busy clinicians in clinical settings.

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the surgical management of common orthopaedic injuries and its implications for patients' recovery and rehabilitation from orthopedic surgeon's perspective
  2. Develop assessment skills and clinical reasoning skills for the management and progression of patients with post common lower limb orthopaedic surgeries throughout their care continuum
  3. Understand the purpose of relevant orthotics and how to don them
  4. Select appropriate walking aids for safe and effective mobilisation
  5. Select evidence-based exercise interventions and prescribe the appropriate exercises for patients with common lower limb orthopaedic surgeries
  6. Integrate clinical knowledge into practical skills through case scenario discussions
