Emergency care professionals are increasingly expected to work autonomously when caring for patients with minor musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. They have to be able to competently and safely take a patient’s history, examine, diagnose and provide management of these conditions. Managing Minor Musculoskeletal Injuries and Conditions pulls together all these aspects of care into one practical, easy-to-read text.

Aimed principally at students undertaking minor injury and emergency care courses, this title is a comprehensive manual of minor musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, highly illustrated throughout and containing a variety of activities and exercises.

Key features:

  • Includes material on study skills, distance and self-directed learning to support both students on formal courses and those working alone
  • Extensive learning features, including a range of activities, hints and tips and multiple-choice questions
  • Supported by a companion website with further self-assessment, downloadable X-ray PowerPoint slides, picture tutorials, practice history-taking documentation and legal scenarios
  • Enables more effective management and care of patients with musculoskeletal injuries
