Act on Axial SpA Primary Care Presentation

Raising awareness of axial SpA across primary care

Working with the NASS Champions in Primary Care we have developed some core resources that can be used in any presentation to primary care to increase the awareness and knowledge of axial SpA as a condition and raise the clinical suspicion during consultations.

This presentation is designed for an audience of primary care HCPs and contains information on NASS, what axial SpA is and the key signs and symptoms, what the act on axial SpA campaign is, what we are doing in primary care and where to find useful resources.

The full presentation is a great starting point to develop your local presentations for education sessions and is available here: Full presentation

This is a shorter more focused presentation to fit in with teaching sessions or slots and will take roughly 15 to 20 minutes.
