Event description

Description

The Spinal Maze is a fast paced, knowledge thirsty 1-day course and will be in Scotland on Saturday, May 5th 2018. The course will focus on managing your index of suspicion within the complexities of spinal pathology and will take you on a journey through Spinal Grifters and Masqueraders as well as common, rare and unique pathologies that often lead us to a place where our clinical navigation requires clarity.
