Collaborative Care of the Shoulder Patient, Surgeon, and Therapist

Part 1 - Saturday, Oct 28th, 2023

Part I of a two part course.

This live webinar is designed to present the importance of the team approach when managing the patient with a pathological or injured shoulder.

Non-surgical and surgical management is explored and presented for better understanding of what the options are for patients with limited shoulder function.

Awareness of unanticipated events, pitfalls, red flags and functional expectations that may occur during recovery will be discussed.

The importance of a strong and collaborative team approach between the Patient, Surgeon and Therapist is essential to achieve each individual’s maximal functional outcome.

We are designing this to be an interactive course. This is a unique opportunity to share ideas, expertise, and experiences between Surgeons and Therapists.
