MDT Clinical Reasoning Workshop


Differential Classification: Join Eduardo Correa and Kalem Kachur, two Montreal-based Diploma MDT clinicians on Sunday, February 5th at 9.00am Eastern, to work your way through a complex case study.  The participants will analyze the information gathered throughout the History and Physical Examination and come to better understand how each piece of information gathered helps to make certain classifications more likely and others less likely.


PRO and PLUS Plan members now have access to the Mechanical Care Forum's Case Review with MI Faculty- Robert Medcalf, ANSWERS IN THE THORACIC SPINE. In the session Robert Medcalf (MIUSA Branch) shares the case of a 55-year-old female with the complaint of bilateral hip and groin pain. He walks us through the patient's history, the physical exam findings, her response in the repeated movement testing and where that led him. This case is a great example of answers found in the thoracic spine for resolution of symptoms outside that region. To access: Simply login to your McKenzie Institute Canada account and scroll down to the information provided under the Educational Enhancement Resources section on the landing page after logging in.
