135551| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Multiple Sclerosis & Related Disorders|

Multiple Sclerosis and other related autoimmune diseases are particularly worrying for patients, in part due to the widespread symptoms that can occur as a result. 

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), for example, can be detrimental to not only your patients’ sensory and motor function, but can also affect balance, vision, memory, mood, causing fatigue, bladder and bowel problems etc. It is also one of the most common causes of disability in younger adults, particularly in women.

In this fascinating and interactive webinar, Dr David Choluj, Consultant Neurologist, will be covering different types of multiple sclerosis and its related disorders, including an in-depth study of MS complications, such as what to do if a patient gets an infection.

To start, we will be examining the aetiologies and forms of MS, its prevalence and natural history. Then, we will be discussing the signs and symptoms to look out for, as well as investigations such as MRI scans and neurological examination to spot abnormalities. Dr Choluj will be exploring differential diagnoses depending on the type of MS, and the best therapies and neuro disability management techniques for patients to maintain a good quality of life.

Other autoimmune disorders will also be explored, such as Lupus, Neuromyelitis Optica or Devic's Disease and Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM). In each case, we will consider how best to spot red flags, diagnose the pathology and proceed with rehabilitation. We will also be understanding how infections can progress and how to intervene when they do.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Expand your understanding of Multiple Sclerosis and related disorders, their aetiologies, natural histories and spotting the red flags
  • Learn which investigations to carry out and differential diagnoses for each condition
  • Advance your knowledge on neuro disability management techniques and how to act if infections occur

 

Agenda

  • Multiple sclerosis – Aetiology
  • Other Autoimmune Disorders – Differential Diagnosis
  • Therapy

135550| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Endometriosis – Spotting The Signs & Communicating Care|

Huge shortcomings in Endometriosis healthcare were underlined this October in a report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), sparking calls for urgent government action to intervene. For example, it found that on average, it takes 8 years for a patient to get a diagnosis. Within that time, 58% of patients had visited their GP more than 10 times, 43% had visited doctors in hospital over 5 times, and 53% had visited A&E.

With 1 in 10 women in the UK affected by Endometriosis, healthcare practitioners could help to make a difference in changing these figures. Be the first to spot the signs in your patients by joining this enlightening webinar, with Consultant Gynaecologist, Mr Ian Currie. We will be looking at modern thinking in diagnosis and assessment to ensure that the condition is caught early and accurately, and current and future management techniques.

Initially, we will be focusing on the aetiology of Endometriosis, and common and uncommon symptoms that your patients may present with, such as pain in the lower back or stomach or severe period pain. We will be discussing some of the red flags to identify, and patients that you should pay particular attention to who could be more susceptible. Investigations, such as a visual examination, ultrasound or laparoscopy may be necessary, and we will be exploring when each technique is needed.

There may be lots of worries or concerns for women once the diagnosis is reached, and knowing how to address such questions is crucial. Mr Currie will advise us on best-practice communication, and how to support patients who need psychological care. 

Ranging from the holistic, to the medical and the surgical, we will be considering the types of treatments readily available, as well as innovative management methods currently being developed, and what the future holds for Endometriosis. 

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Be able to spot the signs early on, whether they are common or uncommon
  • Understand the investigation techniques to carry out and how to make an accurate diagnosis
  • Enhance your communication with worried patients or those who need psychological support
  • Expand your knowledge on management options and the future of Endometriosis care

 

Agenda

Part 1 – Endometriosis: Modern thinking in diagnosis and assessment 

  • Aetiology 
  • Common, uncommon and red flag symptoms
  • Who to investigate 
  • Investigation techniques
  • Worries and concerns for women regarding a diagnosis

Part 2 - Endometriosis: Modern management & the future

135549| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Costochondritis & Chronic Pain – Getting it Off Your Chest!|

An inflammatory condition, such as Costochondritis, can be extremely disabling and often difficult to treat, particularly in persistent or chronic cases. If your patients experience pain between the ribs and sternum, they may worry as it can mimic symptoms of a heart attack or other heart conditions. With this webinar, we will help you to put your patients’ mind at ease, whether their condition is acute or chronic.

Join Dr Ivan Ramos-Galvez, Consultant in Pain Medicine, to enhance your knowledge on the causes, symptoms, investigations, and treatments for Costochondritis, as well as a comprehensive analysis of chronic pain aetiologies and management.

While Costochondritis often has no clear cause, it can be triggered by injury, arthritis, join infection, or more seriously, tumours (benign or malignant). Dr Ramos-Galvez will be helping us to spot the signs and identify red-flags where the problem could be more severe. We will be delving into lines of enquiry, such as X-ray, CT or MRI, to rule out other conditions, and once a diagnosis is reached, how to proceed next. For instance, using common medical treatments including oral analgesics, physiotherapy and injections, you can help to settle the acute symptoms and prevent future relapses. In persistent cases, psychological and physical rehabilitation may be appropriate to restore the quality of life that has been lost to pain and to improve physical functioning.

In the second half of the webinar, Dr Ramos-Galvez will be discussing the many aetiologies of chronic pain, including degenerative disease, neuropathies, circulation, trauma, surgery and the unknown. The life of the individual is also greatly affected, and we will be exploring the physical limitations, psychological suffering, and financial and interpersonal losses. We will be evaluating multidisciplinary management and equipping you with coping strategies to empower your patients and maximise their quality of life.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Enhance your knowledge on the condition Costochondritis, and psychological and physical rehabilitation methods in both acute and prolonged cases
  • Understand the aetiological roles in chronic pain, effects on the individual and coping mechanisms for patients to empower themselves through MDT management

135548| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Hamstring Injuries – Rehabilitation & Prevention to Return to The Pitch|

From Fernando Torres to Michael Owen, hamstring injuries have often been witnessed on the football pitch, but they don’t have to be the end of the player’s career. In Torres’ book, ‘El Nino, My Story’, he summed up his journey with the injury: “The first time it happens you think it is normal and you keep going. The second time, you stop, you take more care and you start to ask yourself why it happened. The third time, you stop properly, you start to investigate the underlying causes and work as hard as you can to make sure it never happens again.” By ignoring the injury, Torres lengthened his recovery and recuperation period, but with the help of his rehab team, he was able to continue playing.

Dr Philip Batty, Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine, will be discussing the latest in rehabilitating hamstring injuries to ensure that your patients benefit from the best possible treatment.

He will be examining the epidemiology and classification of hamstring injuries, by comparing case studies from both elite sport and the general population. We will look at the heightened stresses and strains that elite sportspeople are under, such as making a speedy dash to outwit their opponents. This can result in one or more of the biceps femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus muscles being torn or snapped completely. Using scan images, we will be exploring what to look out for and how to diagnose these injuries accurately.

Dr Batty will be discussing the evidence-base for the debate surrounding PRP treatments, and, in extreme cases such as complete avulsion, surgical approaches. We will be delving into the phased rehabilitation process required to guide an individual from acute injury to return to play and will be discussing the use of pool sessions, to gym based strength and conditioning into pitch based sports specific drills. He will also be giving us the sports medicine perspective on prevention strategies and importance of incorporating certain approaches in pre-season and in-season training to reduce the risk of hamstring injury whilst getting involved with the debate on Nordic hamstring exercises.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain confidence in understanding the pathology of hamstring injuries in order to make an accurate diagnosis
  • In-depth knowledge on best practise rehabilitation methods for conservative and non-conservative treatments
  • Understand how to advise your patients on prevention techniques such as Nordic hamstring exercises

 

Agenda

  • Epidemiology & classification of hamstring injuries – Elite vs. general population 
  • How to identify & diagnose them
  • Treatment options – PRP, surgical & non-surgical approaches
  • Prevention strategies

135533| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Medical Cannabis – Prescriptions & Evidence in the UK|

Gain an insight into pain medicine from a fresh perspective.

Dr Mikael Sodergren, the Managing Director & Academic Lead, and Carl Holvey, Chief Pharmacist, at Sapphire Medical Clinics join us to share their extensive knowledge on medical cannabis. 

Delving into the forms of medical cannabis, our speakers will be examining the current situation in the UK. By outlining the conditions it can be prescribed for, such as Chronic Pain, Anxiety and Palliative Care, they will be explaining how it can help your patients when they have tried other conventional treatments. We will be exploring the latest findings in the field using a thoroughly evidence-based approach and learning how the treatment process works for each condition.

How is a patient evaluated and deemed eligible for treatment with the drug? We will be analysing the parameters, including understanding the governance framework, recommendations, and routes of administration.

Lastly, real-world data collection has indicated that there is evidence for clinical uses of medical cannabis in other conditions; we will be discussing the trials taking place currently and the future of the drug in clinical settings.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the conditions which medical cannabis can treat and why
  • Learn the criteria for a patient prescription
  • Identify the benefits and risks in treatments, as well as legal frameworks involved
  • Enhance your knowledge on the future of clinical uses of medical cannabis

 

Agenda:

  • Medical cannabis in the UK 
  • Conditions treated
  • How a patient is evaluated for treatment - clinical governance framework
  • Real-world evidence data collection
