Cogora: The Agency have just wrapped up their sixth and final workshop of the 2018 Core Skills in Musculoskeletal Care series.

Working with Versus Arthritis, the team delivered an RCGP-accredited programme that educated GPs and other frontline healthcare professionals around the UK in terms of best-practice MSK diagnosis and management.

Designed to each last a full day, the workshops were intimate and highly interactive, encouraging hands-on learning. Delegates were able to learn about useful hints and tips, practice examination skills and receive instant feedback from trainers along the way. Supplemented by additional educational resources, participants also had the chance to discuss treatment and management plans and share experiences with their peers.

The series has proven to be extremely successful, receiving high scores in post-event evaluations for all aspects of the workshops. Relevance to clinical practice, hands-on learning, examination and small group teaching have been identified by delegates as particular highlights.

"This was the best training I have ever been on… It was fantastic to have GPs teach us as they really get the context in which we work and our needs. I feel empowered, upskilled and enabled. Thank you so much!" – Dr Jenny Napier, GP, London workshop delegate (24th May 2018)
