Discover how to use the GRASP best practice advice and exercise programme
Rotator cuff-related shoulder pain is a common condition that causes impaired function. Regular exercise and advice play a crucial role in improving and managing pain and the ability to perform day-to-day activities.
The GRASP randomised controlled clinical trial conducted at the University of Oxford showed that a single GRASP best practice advice session with a physiotherapist (the GRASP programme) was likely to be cost-effective. In terms of clinical outcomes, there was no evidence of a difference when compared with a physiotherapy intervention of up to six face-to-face sessions.
On this two-week GRASP course, you’ll gain expert insights from health professionals and researchers and become empowered to implement the GRASP programme in your own clinical practice.
