Rationale & Features:

Rationale:
Disorders of the musculoskeletal system are becoming more common. The Bone and Joint Decade, a multi-disciplinary global campaign, has highlighted and forewarned a rising incidence of injury or aging related musculoskeletal disorders. This is particularly true for injuries sustained at work, and also from recreational activities and sports. The impact of Osteoporosis and muscle dysfunctional problems with aging is also imminent. These disorders are also on the rise in Hong Kong. It is timely for health care professionals to brace themselves with up-to-date information and skills in the management of these disorders.

 
骨關節系統疾病近年越趨普遍。《骨關節十年》:一個全球性跨學科運動,重申及預警了因創傷或老年而引致的骨關節疾病個案的增加趨勢。當中包括工傷,一般餘暇活動及運動受傷。骨質疏鬆和肌肉功能失調等相關問題亦趨嚴重。在香港,此等骨關節疾病也在日益增加。目前是醫療及護理專業人員進修先進的骨關節知識及技術的良好機會。
 

Features:
The programme provides an inter-disciplinary and clinical platform to enable health-care professionals from different backgrounds to gain a holistic view of current developments in musculoskeletal medicine and rehabilitation and to have practical training in rehabilitation skills either in their focused areas of interest or to broaden themselves into different aspects of rehabilitation.

 
本課程提供一個跨專業互動學習及臨床訓練平台,使不同背景的醫護專業人員對現時的骨關節醫學與復康工作有全面了解,專注於某一復康領域作深入的探討,或接觸其他新的復康技術。
