RCGP eLearning module

Axial SpA (AS) resources for GPs

RCGP eLearning module

NASS worked in partnership with the British Society for SpondyloArthritis (BRITSpA) to sponsor an eLearning module on axial spondyloarthritis on the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) website. The module covers diagnosis and management.

It was authored by Professor Karl Gaffney, consultant rheumatologist at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital and Dr Daniel Murphy, who works both as a rheumatologist at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, and a GP in Devon.

We really hope this course will help GPs understand more about axial SpA (AS) and, over time, reduce the long delay to diagnosis. These modules are currently available to members of the Royal College of GPs.
