This is the second webinar in a three-part series on ageing. This episode will outline the ageing processes in the increasingly complex system of cartilage, bone and muscle.

Participants will understand cellular function and dysfunction throughout life and learn to distinguish between physiological and chronological ageing process in their patients’ musculoskeletal systems. 

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. 

A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
