A Musculoskeletal (MSK) primary care e-learning programme has been developed to support clinicians working in primary care as first contact practitioners (FCP) in a primary care environment.

n a primary care setting it has been reported that a GP will see 20% of their case load as MSK in origin and it has also been highlighted that using the wider workforce, such as physiotherapists, can improve outcomes, give high patient satisfaction, save time and ultimately costs. To support these new models of care organisations have been aligned, through community services, with primary care to develop new pathways of patient management. In doing so there is a need for appropriate training and governance to support staff moving into these new forms of practice.

This 8-session resource is available to NHS staff across the UK.
