The Rotator Cuff Module & One Day Workshop

The Rotator Cuff Module & One Day Workshop

The Rotator Cuff is the third module in the Diagnosis and Non-Surgical Management course.

 

 

 

This module covers the pathoaetiology, natural history, diagnosis and non-surgical management of rotator cuff-related conditions. Lessons in this module begin with the diagnosis of subacromial pain and are then divided according to evidence for specific management of rotator cuff related conditions.

Module Lessons:

Diagnosis of Subacromial Pain

This is the first lesson in the "Rotator Cuff" Module.

The ability to first differentiate the subacromial region as the source of pain is the first step in the diagnostic process for symptomatic subacromial pathology.  

In this lesson, we cover:

  • Definition of subacromial pain
  • Clinical diagnosis of subacromial pain
  • Imaging diagnosis of subacromial pain
  • Imaging indications and interpretation

 Study time: 2-3 hrs (approx.)

Atraumatic Rotator Cuff-Related Pain

This is the second lesson in the "Rotator Cuff" module.

Atraumatic, rotator cuff-related pain (RCRP) encompasses a number of subacromial conditions that are managed non-operatively.   

In this lesson, we cover:

  • Pathoaetiology
  • Natural history
  • Clinical diagnosis
  • Imaging diagnosis
  • Non-surgical management
  • Referral criteria

Study time: 3-4 hrs (approx

Traumatic Rotator Cuff Tears

This is the third lesson in the "Rotator Cuff" module.

Identification and appropriate referral for orthopaedic review is important for traumatic rotator cuff tears. 

In this lesson, we cover:

  • Classification
  • Pathoaetiology
  • Natural history
  • Clinical diagnosis
  • Imaging diagnosis
  • Non-surgical management
  • Referral criteria

Study time: 3-4 hrs (approx.)

Massive/Inoperable Rotator Cuff Tears

This is the fourth lesson in the "Rotator Cuff" module.

Massive or inoperable rotator cuff tears require specific rehabilitation, and many patients regain good upper limb function. 

In this lesson, we cover:

  • Classification
  • Pathoaetiology
  • Natural history
  • Clinical diagnosis
  • Imaging diagnosis
  • Non-surgical management and specific rehabilitation
  • Referral criteria

Study time: 3-4 hrs (approx.)

Calcific Tendinopathy

This is the fifth lesson in the "Rotator Cuff" module.

Calcific tendinopathy is a cell-mediated process that may be self-limiting, or may require specific intervention.  

In this lesson, we cover:

  • Pathoaetiology
  • Natural history
  • Clinical diagnosis
  • Imaging diagnosis
  • Non-surgical management
  • Referral criteria

Study time: 3-4 hrs (approx.)
