Pre-congress Workshop

Welcome to the SSR-MSR 2019 Pre-Conference Workshops! This year, we have planned two unique and exciting workshops to cater to various rheumatology healthcare professionals - including rheumatologists, trainees, specialist nurses , physiotherapists and occupational therapists.  It will be a truly multi-disciplinary workshop!


The Workshop on Soft Tissue Rheumatism is a one-and-a-half day masterclass with a focus on the periarticular soft tissue conditions that often mimic or complicate the inflammatory arthritides. The faculty, comprising distinguished hand surgeons, sports physicians, podiatrists, physical and occupational therapists, will take participants through the approach and examination techniques of various soft tissue disorders.  Ultrasound techniques for these conditions will also be demonstrated.

Occurring concurrently, the Workshop on Rheumatoid Arthritis is a one-day masterclass designed for specialty nurses and pharmacists, who want to improve their skills in the assessment and education of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Conducted by Ms Susan Oliver, Rheumatology Nurse Consultant, participants will have much to gain from her extensive experience with the NHS and EULAR.

Come join us in this great opportunity to learn and meet like-minded colleagues from around the region.  We look forward to seeing you there!
