Journal Club #23

Date Recorded: 13/05/24

Duration: 60 minutes

Presenter/Topic: Michael Zo

Topic: What did I miss? Rethinking red flag screening

In this presentation, we will be looking at the fundamental framework of clinical decision making and potential pitfalls which we can contribute to errors in clinical reasoning. We will use case examples including patients presenting with potential serious pathologies affecting the spine to highlight some of the common sources of diagnostic errors and strategies to minimise error rates. We will also have the opportunity to revisit the IFOMPT framework for serious spinal pathologies and its application in the wider clinical contexts.

This 60 minute zoom session will dive into various articles, guidelines and consensus statements to help keep those in clinical practice up to date with current literature. Article links will be provided beforehand for those interested in reading. During the journal club, the topical article(s) will be presented briefly before a group discussion around key points. Discussion will be mediated by the NZMPA Executive Committee members who are organising that particular night.

Note that we are encouraging members, or interested individuals, of all skill levels and experience to join and participate. Whether you come to learn, facilitate or broaden discussion, we hope that you will both benefit your own clinical practice and the overall Journal Club goal of encouraging high standards of clinical practice in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.

Cost: Open to anyone interested.
