Welcome to the musculoskeletal community Public view | Network member posting
Hi All Thank you for joining the musculoskeletal community. I wanted to create a space where people active in musculoskeletal service redesign, education and frontline delivery can connect. Please feel free to suggest new members and start message threads. you can upload documents, presentations etc too. There's a load of functionality on the nhsnetworks site but it's not that intuitive. Most stuff can be found by clicking 'your menu' tab under your name/profile.

What works in MSK? Public view | Network member posting
A place to share innovations, successes, battle scars. What have you tried that flew, and why? What helped it happen? leadership, patient/service user involvement? And how do we identify what works and enable this to spread?

Peer support Public view | Network member posting
Sometimes those folk practicing in extended scope roles, be that ESP or GPwSI roles can be ploughing a pretty lonely furrow. This could be a space to establish loose networks for peer support. What do you think?

Show me the evidence Public view | Network member posting
Those involved in driving service improvements in MSK are asking what works. Some examples below: • Direct access physiotherapy (or other therapies) • GP/ESP access to MRI scanning • Interface services, MSCATS, ‘see and treat’ services, Tier 2 services • Telehealth/technology interventions for MSK eg MSK help, online consultations, disease monitoring • Use of web-based, paper, video exercise interventions for musculoskeletal conditions (I mention as this is often the only intervention people receive) • Shared decision-making support for MSK conditions • Shared prescribing of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDS) • Group consultations for MSK conditions. When considering the above the kind of questions I'm keen to find out the evidence (published, grey literature) for: • Does they improve outcomes? • Are they clinically and cost-effective? • Are there particular conditions for which they are more effective? • Are there unintended consequences of these interventions? • Are they safe? Please feel free to discuss and upload any resources or supporting documents you may have.
