Educational instruments and tools

Paediatric Musculoskeletal Matters (PMM) recommended for PReS members to use in their teaching of medical students, paediatricians, family doctors and allied health professionals. PMM content includes clinical skills (pGALS, pREMS,  with videos), common clinical presentations, 'red flags' (when to be concerned and refer for specialist advice) and essential knowledge about management of rheumatic disease. PMM  - an open and free resource - was developed by Professor Helen Foster and colleagues at Newcastle University, UK, with additional contributions from paediatric rheumatologists around the world to reflect variation in clinical practice. PMM-nursing (launch September 2017) targets all nurses and students working with children and young people and was developed with nurse educators and nurse specialists.

The pGALS app recommended for PReS members to use in teaching of medical students, paediatricians, family doctors and allied health professionals. Translations of pGALS into several languages have been provided by PReS members. The pGALS app – an open and free resource - was developed by Professor Helen Foster and colleagues at Newcastle University, UK.
