This orthopaedic trauma webinar will provide a sound basis for establishing an evidence-based approach to orthopaedic trauma care

Evidence-based orthopaedics involves the integration of current best practise with clinical expertise and patient values to guide health care decisions. However, implementing an evidence-based surgical practice is difficult and strategies are needed to address the complexity of healthcare systems and facilitate the formation of an evidence-based environment. 

The educational objectives include:

  • Understanding the importance of evidence-based medicine and learning how to combine scientific knowledge with clinical expertise and patient values in everyday practise
  • An appreciation of the principles of clinical guidelines development through evidence-based learning using venous thromboembolism in orthopaedic surgery as an example
  • Learning what is required to pursue a career in academic orthopaedics
  • Being aware of the role of evidenced-based practise in changing the routine management of common orthopaedic conditions such as hip fracture surgery. 

All speakers are acknowledged experts in orthopaedic trauma with considerable clinical and research experience. The focus of the webinar will be how the latest research impacts on the practical management of orthopaedic trauma cases including open fractures 

There are 10 x bursary places available for students and trainees. Please email orthopaedics@rsm.ac.uk and include your student or trainee ID to claim your free place.
