Working in a busy clinic, with a shared patient load can be tough! We often make quick diagnosis and treatment decisions with pattern recognition and intuition to make our patient load manageable. This approach, while saving time, can at times lead to errors in clinical reasoning and ineffective treatment. How can you work efficiently, avoid clinical reasoning errors, and change directions if your patient isn’t responding to treatment?
In Sherlock Holmes and the Sign of the Four Hypotheses, Nick Kendrick (APA Titled Musculoskeletal & Sports Physio) presents the case study of a patient with posterior arm pain.
Sherlock’s journey starts off in the wrong direction, and treatment stops improving his patients' pain. Find out if Sherlock will get back on track and work through his patients problems with clinical reasoning & reflective practice.
In Sherlock Holmes and the Sign of the Four Hypotheses, you’ll:
- Put your clinical reasoning to the test, to figure out where Sherlock went wrong and what he missed.
- Discover differential diagnoses for posterior arm and elbow pain.
- Improve your neurological and neurodynamic examination skills.
- Discover how to use new or updated information from your patient, along with flexible thinking to update your diagnosis, assessment & treatment.
- Identify when your treatment is effective, or ineffective and needs to change direction.
- Find out what “The 6P’s” are, and why they are important for effective clinical practice.
- Build a fluid, dynamic clinical reasoning process and reflective practice to improve your treatment results.
