The trio made their first trip to Kenya in March last year to run the UWEZO Musculoskeletal Health Training Project raising awareness among clinical officers, nurses and other community based health workers and giving them the basic skills in diagnosis and referrals. The team are now gearing up to go back to Kenya in August for the second course, which will also feature a self-management programme for patients. Junior Kayak Club Junior Kayak Club. 6 evening sessions starting from Thursday 1st August 17.30 20.30. Ages 8 – 16,no previous experience required. 75 per person.

Funding has come from the International League of Associations for Rheumatology (ILAR), Cornwall Arthritis Trust and The Rotary Club in Falmouth. The week-long course attracts medical personnel from all over Kenya. Professor Woolf said: We have participants from 11 different regions and we train them to become musculoskeletal health trainers. Once they are certified they then work as a team in their region to train community health providers who are usually the first point of contact for patients. So far our trainers have gone on to train 400 people in eight regions. For us meeting these patients was a bit like going back to the 1950s here. There were people who had lost the use of joints and were bed bound because they had never had treatment or it had come too late. The team have so far been fortunate with their funding and donations of equipment have also helped. OT equipment was provided and Bristol company Limbs & Things provided 12 model limbs which will be used in August to demonstrate how to inject into joints.

The supervising doctor outlines their duties based on experience and skills. They are nationally certified and state-licensed. Physician assistants have a bachelor’s degree and complete a physician assistant training program, which averages 27 months and includes 2,000 hours of clinical work in different specialties such as pediatrics and psychiatry. Primary care doctors have more than 15,000 hours of clinical training. The Missouri State Medical Association , along with other state doctors’ groups, supported easing supervision on physician assistants. “We need to be able to get high quality medical care to these remote areas with a low volume of patients and no doctors,” said Dr. Stevan Whitt , chief medical officer for the University of Missouri Health System , who testified in favor of the law. Physician assistants can staff satellite clinics, make house calls, visit nursing homes or make hospital rounds. By 2015, the Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a national shortage of 33,100 primary care physicians because medical students are choosing other specialties with better pay and hours, and older primary care physicians are retiring. These much-needed providers, however, leave Missouri in droves. The state has two physician assistants training programs: at St.
