Seminar description:

By now most non-BIG-registered therapists in the Netherlands will have gained or updated their certificate on Western medicine. Knowledge of Western medicine is important to distinguish cases which you can handle by yourself from the so-called Red flags. Red flags are cases that need referral to a physician. It is not only in the anamnesis (the medical interview on complaints) where red flags might get clear. Also in physical examination red flags may be found.

In this lively and practical one day’s course the basic elements of physical examination will be explained. The teacher will demonstrate a range of important elements of physical examination that can easily be performed by therapists. Participants will also get the opportunity for a teacher guided practice during the course.
