Healthcare professionals who work across diverse settings, regardless of specialization or certification, need to know how to take care of an orthopedic patient. You may not know all the procedures and/or devices, but you need to be able to ask appropriate questions to provide the patient care needed. No one wants to cause harm out of ignorance. . .
Orthopedics is not just about trauma and broken bones. Today orthopedics has matured into a major surgical sub-specialty. Gone are the days of just putting a cast on a fracture or placing a patient into some form of skeletal traction for a long bone fracture. The expansion in treatment options has mirrored the aging of the “baby boomers”. Individuals are expected to be active and productive well into their 70s and 80s. Medicine is helping us live longer…but our joints are still wearing out. Attend this comprehensive educational day to properly meet the needs of the complex orthopedic patients who come your way!
