The GP and the Orthopod... 2021 - When to refer, replace and repair, from paediatrics to the elderly
Prince of Wales Private Hospital invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting presented by Dr Doron Sher, Dr Michael Solomon, Dr. Arnold Suzuki and facilitated by Orthopaedics NUM Jeremy Evangelatos.

Activity ID 263294.

In this meeting, we will discuss GP's management of common shoulder, knee and paediatric orthopaedic problems. Looking at different investigations required for a diagnosis of each of the problems and to provide GP's with a general overview of how they will treat and manage patients. We aim to assist GP's in the diagnosis and management pathways for common orthopaedic presentations and provide pathways for referral of problems.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Manage very common rotator cuff tears understanding conservative versus operative management, the success of surgery and how often replacement is required for chronic cuff tears.
2. Manage partial knee arthritis with an understanding of selective operative management pathways, utilising unicompartmental knee replacement technology, when it’s possible, and the success of surgery and potential pitfalls for patients.
3. Assess and manage limb alignment in paediatric patients, understanding what’s normal and variance with an overview of common paediatric orthopaedic problems.
