Are you ready to redefine your approach to rheumatology?

Join us at the JAM session, where science meets clinical practice in an engaging and informative environment. Since its inception in 2015, this event has been a cornerstone for GPs and allied health professionals aiming to enhance their understanding of musculoskeletal diseases, which frequently present yet are often underestimated in general practice.

Rheumatic diseases aren’t just textbook cases; they walk into clinics daily. It’s crucial for medical professionals to proficiently identify and manage these conditions, whether they are inflammatory, biomechanical, or degenerative. Our past sessions, including the virtual meeting in February 2023 that drew 440 registrants and our live in-person August event with 175 registrants, have consistently delivered impactful learning experiences that resonate with attendees.

The day begins with a networking opportunity in the Exhibition Hall— ideal for fostering connections and sharing insights. The program then unfolds with segments like ‘Rheumatology Reasoning’, ‘What’s New’, and ‘Tips & Tricks’, each curated to challenge and inspire.

Highlights include:

  • ‘Crystals in Control’ by Dr Nicholas Malouf, which will delve into effective management strategies for crystal-induced arthropathies.
  • ‘Flares and Fires: Consider Auto-Inflammation’ by Dr Hugh Caterson, focusing on the world of auto-inflammatory disorders and their management.
  • ‘Bone Deep: Osteoporosis in 2024’ by Dr Queenie Luu, offering a fresh perspective on modern osteoporosis care.

You’ll gain valuable insights into diagnostic techniques and innovative treatment modalities, enhanced by the firsthand experiences of leading specialists. Plus, all sessions are recorded and hosted online for on-demand access, ensuring you can revisit the wealth of knowledge shared.

Our goal is to establish the JAM session as the premier educational event for rheumatology in Australia. Whether you’re new to rheumatology or seeking to deepen your expertise, the JAM session is designed to provide you with the tools to significantly improve patient outcomes in your practice.
