NEEDS ASSESSMENT
We have surveyed our conference participants and professionals in the community through an annual needs assessment and on-site evaluations at our conferences, and have found an increase in educational need for cutting edge information on topics including osteoporosis, physical exam to diagnose and medically manage certain orthopaedic conditions, functional knowledge of anatomy, choosing correct casting/splinting for specific injuries, proper referrals, joint tap injections, x-ray interpretations, pediatric orthopaedic exam, diagnosis, and treatment.

There is an evident need for this information on selection of treatments for orthopaedic injuries. This year’s 6-day conference will specifically address all of these unmet educational needs and provide practitioners with state-of-the-art tools to better treat their patients. This unique seminar provides a comprehensive review and update of orthopaedic problems and their complications. Emphasizing an anatomical approach, seminar leaders begin with the fingers and proceed through the upper limb, down the spine, along the leg to the toes.

This approach gives general, family, and emergency physicians, pediatricians, and internists a comprehensive view of orthopaedics that is applicable to their daily practice and clinically relevant. Emergency physicians can expect to use the information to care for the patient with an acute orthopaedic injury. The program includes lectures, small group discussions, clinical workshops, and course syllabus. In anatomical review workshops, participants work with cadaver specimens. Another workshop provides practical experience in the application of casts and splinting techniques. The camp experience allows participants to interact with faculty outside the classroom.

There may be many networking opportunities at the 37th Annual Fingers To The Toes: A Comprehensive Review Of Primary Care Orthopaedics. Find out more in the event details below.
