Principles of static splinting
This webinar will focus on the stage of healing of an injury where static splinting may be considered as part of treatment.

We will consider the stages of healing from an injury and what treatment priorities are identified, then how to decide what splint would be appropriate for the injury. Case studies will be used for participants to apply the principles.

Learning outcomes:
Participants will be able to recognise the stage of tissue healing of their patient, form treatment priorities. If treatment includes splinting, participants will be able to plan what joints and in what position these joints should be splinted. Participants will be able to prescribe a splinting schedule and additional treatments for the patient’s stage of tissue healing.
