Musculoskeletal courses for clinicians available in June, August

By Gerald Sonnenberg
EES Marketing and Communication

ORLANDO, Fla. There are two upcoming classes at the VHA Simulation Learning, Education and Research Network (SimLEARN) National Simulation Center for the Musculoskeletal (MSK) Clinician Training Program. These face-to-face classes June 27-28 and Aug. 15-16 are designed to enhance a primary care provider’s knowledge, skills and confidence to manage common musculoskeletal problems. In addition, this training emphasizes appropriate resource utilization and access to specialty care. 

MSK diseases are common, and many patients seek care for these problems in primary care and urgent care clinics. In the past decade, MSK conditions were identified as the most frequent diagnoses in primary care clinic encounters in the U.S. Despite this prevalence, providers are often not well prepared to effectively address common MSK problems within their clinical setting.

Travel funding for attendees must be locally provided by their respective VA Medical Center or Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN). Travel policy will be strictly enforced in an effort to keep costs within approved conference limits.

EES partners with peer VHA program offices to design, develop, implement, evaluate and accredit quality education and training programs to improve outcomes in Veteran clinical care, health care operations and administration. EES also develops specialized learning content to equip VHA’s health care providers with the most current knowledge and skills to address the challenging needs unique to a Veteran patient population.
