Event description
Tutor: Ms Claire Robertson MSc PGCE MCSP
This course aims to directly impact on the clinician's ability to assess and treat patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome, (PFPS). The course is a mixture of theory, demonstrations and practical sessions, totally underpinned by evidence. There is a strong emphasis on clinical reasoning throughout.
Claire Robertson is a consultant physiotherapist in patellofemoral pain, at Wimbledon Clinics. She is actively involved in patellofemoral research, having published in many journals, including the American journal of Sports Medicine. She is currently writing up a number of papers following extensive research on the vmo, and she is also currently researching patellofemoral crepitus. Claire's niche clinical practice and research activity places her perfectly to deliver this course.
Learning Outcomes

Describe the aetiology of PFPS.

Expertly surface mark anatomy relating to the PFJ.
