This seminar provides the opportunity for GP's to learn about the management of orthopaedic injuries and conditions as seen in general practice. The session will focus on common orthopaedic injuries and surgical procedures, presented by three Orthopaedic surgeons on pre and post-surgery management. Patient assessment techniques and symptoms to look out for to ensure accurate referral will also be covered. The activity will include didactic style presentations using slides and case studies.
All presentations have been designed in relation to direct feedback received from General Practitioners in the online webinars we have held in the past 3 months
