2.1. The Hip: Differential diagnosis of soft tissue pathologies about the hip, and their management; with particular reference to gluteal tendinopathy/trochanteric bursitis - Paul Smith and Angela Fearon

Hip pain is one of the most common presentations to rehabilitation physicians. While diagnosing end stage hip osteoarthritis is not difficult, for all other forms of "hip pain" it can be difficult to ascertain the underlying cause. Is it lumbar spine or SIJ referral? Is it GTPS? Deep gluteal syndrome? Piriformis syndrome? or femoral ischial impingement?

What clinical tests will provide the most valuable likelihood ratios? Does imaging help with this diagnostic challenge? And, what is the evidence based approach to treatment?

Come and join us for a lively discussion on where the science stands now, and how you can use it in practice.

2.2. Impact and health technology assessment in Health Care – what is relevant for rehabilitation medicine? - Associate Professor Andrew Searles, Associate Director - Health Research Economics, HMRI
