The Clinical Maze is a fast paced, knowledge thirsty 2-day course and is designed for those with an interest in Musculoskeletal (MSK) pathology who are looking to extend their Advanced Practice through enhancing their clinical reasoning and management of MSK and Non-MSK Disorders. The journey through the Clinical Maze will challenge critical thinking through a detailed review of Systems Thinking and its application to clinical practice. You will explore and enhance your differential diagnosis to guide your decision-making and Index of Suspicion within MSK assessment from simple to complex pathology. Gut Instinct, Masqueraders, Red Flags, Triage and much more within a variety of settings will be discussed in context, where clinical decisions are key, with consideration for the management of Care Pathways, Imaging, Bloods, Nerve Conduction Studies, Injections, Pharmacology and Governance as to how they impact on next steps.

Tutor: Steve Nawoor Msc(MACP), BSc(hons)

I took a relatively unorthodox route into Physiotherapy, from mines and demolitions in the Army, to a Physical Training Instructor in the Prison Service..! Currently working as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist and Injection Therapist within a Musculoskeletal Interface Service working alongside GPwSI and Consultants, which has been highlighted by the Department of Health as an example of Best Practice. Previously, Professional Head of Physiotherapy at Nuffield Health as well as Lecturing at Keele University, I have owned a number of private practices and travelled extensively with Elite Sport to various World and European Championships. My real passion lies with Advanced Practice, complex pathology, pain, masqueraders and rehabilitation and you will generally find me contributing to clinical debate on Twitter @stevenawoor, blogging, running an Obstacle Course Race and drinking Coffee..!
