Red Flags, Serious Spinal Pathology and Systems Thinking This one-day workshop focuses on the development of clinical reasoning in relation to the detection of non-musculoskeletal disorders presenting within the Musculoskeletal clinic through a perspective of ‘Systems Thinking’. Andrew discusses the utility of Red Flags and how to incorporate these alongside ‘Systems Thinking’ to aid clinical reasoning.

Very good speaker and obviously extremely knowledgeable. Engaging and entertaining to listen to as well.

I wasn't expecting the practical aspect- but found that really useful, and found the clinical reasoning case studies helpful. Some of the content was heavy going at times - but it was communicated in a very easy to digest manner. Andrew was an engaging and entertaining course tutor - I'd be happy to spend some more time learning with him!

I thought that Andrew knew the topic very well and was an excellent presenter. His passion for up to date best practise motivates me to become a better Physio and by attending more courses like that, I hopefully will develop as a better practitioner.
