SIG of Orthopaedics
The SIG in Orthopaedics has a special interest in musculoskeletal conditions. This includes diagnosis, ancillary tests and active and passive therapy to address acute and chronic conditions and dysfunction of joints, bones, muscles, connective tissues and associated nerves. Management of clinical conditions favours a functional approach to care, which includes physical rehabilitation and exercise as treatment. The faculty acts as a reservoir of information to promote competent, effective and safe practice in the diagnosis and treatment of clinical problems affecting these tissues. The faculty hosts master classes and symposia to address the learning needs of the profession. In addition, the faculty supports and encourages research to inform and direct clinical practise.
