Back in Focus offers CPD accredited online learning modules for rheumatology healthcare professionals interested in learning more about axial SpA (including ankylosing spondylitis) to complete in their own time. Structured around clinical case studies the modules begin with the initial visit to the rheumatologist and follow the patient's assessment, treatment and follow-up appointment. Each module includes questions throughout which can be used for personal reflection or discussion in a group setting, followed by multiple choice questions to test knowledge at the end. Key aspects covered in the online module include:
  • Identifying inflammatory back pain
  • Extra-articular manifestations in axial SpA
  • Interpreting imaging in axial SpA
  • NICE guidance for treatment of axial SpA (AS and nr-axSpA)
  • Considerations for initiating biologic treatment for axial SpA
  • Outcome measures in axial SpA
There are currently two modules available, focused on management of axial SpA in secondary care. You need to register to access the online modules.
