Health Professionals

MSKHUB also offers health professionals an access to further education, latest research articles and developments in the field of rheumatic and musculoskeletal rehabilitation.

MSKHUB Research team offers training programmes for Health Professionals in Rheumatology through CPD days held at the University Salford. You can contact us using the below contact form to enquire about these. Meanwhile, we are working on creating online educational materials to increase the access to specialist rheumatology training via the MSKHUB. Currently, these programmes are under development, but we will be with you very soon! Please continue to check this page and follow us on twitter for updates on the latest developments on MSKHUB. However, through the MSKHUB you can download Patient Reported Outcome Measures [PROMs] we have developed and tested and most importantly, you can signpost your patients to the MSKHUB to undertake self-assessments through online PROMS and engage with self-management strategies, tailor made for their needs. Your patients will be able to download the results of these assessments in a pdf format and share with you to inform their treatment plans. Having completed these assessments prior to their clinic visit will save time in consultation, allowing more time for you to spend on therapeutic interactions.
