  • have practices numerous reduction and immobilization techniques
  • know if and when orthopedics needs to be involved
  • .... and you will change your practice on your next shift

Focus is on cases that are:

  • common
  • commonly missed
  • and commonly mismanaged

The case-based lectures also help to understand ED orthopedic principles Knowing what questions to ask, what to look for on exam and how to order and interpret x-rays will help you on your next shift. You will develop better management plans for your patients.
