Topics discussed will include:

  5. How and Why Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) influence health outcomes;
  6. What patients want from their care;
  7. What are the ingredients of value-based care;
  8. Areas of physio that are primed for medicalization and overtreatment.

At the end of this course, participants will:

  1. Recognize the factors that influence health-related outcomes in individuals with musculoskeletal disorders
  2. Understand research design nuisances that can markedly influence outcomes
  3. Synthesize the evidence on a number of areas of healthcare that are commonly misunderstood
