We are delighted to announce the official launch of a GP education module on axial Spondyloarthritis. This project has been led by Drs Karl Gaffney and Dr Danny Murphy and is a joint NASS/BRITSpA educational initiative.

This course aims to educate GPs about Axial Spondyloarthritis (SpA). The first session covers the presentation, including which clinical features should raise suspicion of SpA.
A case study illustrates key features in the history and examination, how to investigate in primary care and the criteria for referral to secondary care. The second session discusses management and the wider impact of SpA, including effects on employment.

As members, we would encourage you to share it with your primary care colleagues. It can also be accessed by any HCP if they sign-up on the RCGP website for free.

The course can be accessed at the following website: http://elearning.rcgp.org.uk/backpain
