Multi-disciplinary MSK workforce in the NHS - a high quality solution to the workforce and public health crises?
The session will introduce the proposal to develop a truly multi-disciplinary College for MSK, Sport and Exercise based on a merge of FSEM and BASEM and followed by case studies from Connect Health, a provider to the NHS who has re-constructed its workforce to include osteopaths, chiropractors, sports therapists and people with lived experience working as equals alongside traditional NHS MSK clinicians. The session will cover successes and ongoing challenges in this journey. The session should be of interest to all MSK clinicians and managers working in and outside the NHS.
