Rheumatology for OSCEs
Rheumatology can be a bit daunting and it can be hard to know where to begin. I made this talk to be a comprehensive focussed guide on how to smash those rheumatology stations in your upcoming OSCEs. It will include a wide variety of things from common history stations to the infamous hand exam! Hopefully see you there.
Common histories- questions to ask, follow up investigations, referral (arthralgia, hot swollen joint, back pain, headache)
Common explanations- rheumatoid arthritis
Medication counselling- bisphosphonates, steroids, methotrexate
Hand exam basics to look for common pathology
