    SPA-MSK SIG Presents a Webinar on 
    Differential Diagnoses and Red Flags for Knee Pain 


    Synopsis:

    Physiotherapists are increasingly first-contact practitioners when it comes to identifying musculoskeletal disorders. We must be able to effectively rule out patients with potential red flags and refer them promptly to the appropriate medical professional within the team.

    The Musculoskeletal Special Interest Group is excited to have Dr Alan Cheung share about his expertise on how to screen and manage red flags for knee disorders. He will also be giving us some tips on how to communicate them effectively to doctors.

    Speaker: Dr Alan Cheung

    Dr Alan Cheung is a Specialist in Robotic Joint Replacement, and Sports Injuries. Beyond his orthopaedic specialties, Dr Alan Cheung is the Events Team Doctor for the Singapore Cycling Federation and Wrestling Federation of Singapore.

    He was previously local medical lead for the One Championship and One Warrrior Series mixed martial events in Singapore, and has also been the matchday doctor for the Singapore HSBC Rugby Sevens and SuperRugby events in Singapore.

    SPA MSK SIG Event in conjunction with Pain Association of Singapore: Psychologically Informed Physiotherapy.

    The concept of psychologically informed physiotherapy in pain management has been around since the mid-1990s.

This webinar will bring together three speakers to explore the history and application of psychologically informed physiotherapy and psychological approaches to pain.

    SPA Education Event: Physiotherapy and the earth's global climate: a need for cultural change (revisited)

    Many of us are concerned about the burden human activity is placing on the planet and ongoing environmental degradation is likely to lead to many health problems, including the likelihood of more pandemics. This presentation will introduce ideas that support a more environmentally-caring physiotherapy profession. Lester will revisit the 2009 article, written shortly after bushfires in Australia killed over 170 people. He will present the challenges to implementing recommended actions and share some observations (and some concerns) about current physiotherapy practice. He will provide an overview of ways of employing the natural environment in treatment and also introduce the global initiative, ‘Environmental Physiotherapy Agenda 2023’, in which Singapore Institute of Technology is involved as a participating organisation. This presentation will explore opportunities for the profession's decision-makers to support making physiotherapy greener and what individuals might choose to do as managers or in their clinical practice.

    Dr Lester Jones, Senior Lecturer, Singapore Institute of Technology
