This half-hour module aims to update GPs about scoliosis, a common orthopaedic condition in childhood which benefits from early recognition. The module uses a case-study approach to discuss the clinical assessment of a patient presenting with possible scoliosis as well as how to investigate in primary care, when to refer and the possible approaches that might be taken in secondary care.

 An educational grant was received by Scoliosis Association UK for the production of the course.  Editorial and content decisions were made solely by the RCGP.
