COVID19: Information to support health professionals

Below are some resources which we have put together that we hope health professionals will find useful in these uncertain times. Additional information can also be found on the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA) website.

National Guidance for rheumatology and MSK services

NICE and NHS England have both developed guidance for health care professionals working in the areas of rheumatology and MSK.

Working on the frontline

We are hearing more and more about members of the rheumatology community being redeployed to work in frontline roles on COVID19 wards. We thought this app might be useful, especially those of you who haven’t worked in a frontline role before, or for some time.

Remote consultations

We are all embracing a new way of working, so here are some tips for you on remote consultations from the Health Foundation, Chartered Society for Physiotherapy and Physio Matters.

E-learning resources for GPs
