Course Description and Statement of Need

Traumatic injuries remain the primary cause of death in young adults between the ages of 18-50.  EMTALA legislation passed by Congress was intended to reduce inappropriate patient referrals to level-1 trauma centers.  However, this legislation has had the unwanted effect of making legitimate transfer of seriously injured patients more difficult.  As a result, more patients with complex injuries remain at the admitting hospital placing the responsibility for care on the surgeons practicing at non-trauma hospitals.  This has increased the need for these surgeons who take emergency call to be current with contemporary methods of fracture management. 

This course will address the latest techniques and algorithms for the care of patients with complex musculoskeletal problems through a combination of didactic lectures, expert panel case studies, and audience questions.

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for orthopedic surgeons, emergency room physicians, physician assistants, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners and registered nurses.

Educational Objectives

  • Utilize an algorithmic approach for the treatment of recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation.
  • Examine patients with proximal humeral fractures and determine appropriate course of action to achieve best functional outcome while minimizing complications.
  • List the complications and challenges with implant durability that may result from total elbow arthroplasty.
  • Examine patients with prodermal pain and stop the use of bisphosphonates, when indicated in order to prevent atypical, low-energy subtrochanteric fractures.
  • Discuss the option of total hip arthroplasty with elderly patients who present with displaced fractures of the femoral neck
