Paediatric Musculoskeletal Matters - PMM

Thise-resource is targeted at medical students and primary care doctors in the first instance, with the content and format informed by research and opinion from child health, primary care and learners in the various user groups.

The content is basic essentials of clinical assessment (pGALS, pREMS) and key knowledge about normal development, key conditions to know about in paediatric rheumatology and orthopaedics, when to be concerned (red flags), investigations and referral advice.

There are cases, video demos of pGALS / pREMS, many "top tips" and links to resources and other websites.

Feedback is welcome with an e-survey built into the site. The key messages are very transferable to other clinicians including paediatricians, adult rheumatologists and doctors working in orthopaedics and accident and emergency.
