CASTED: Emergency (2 day course)

Date: May 30 – May 31, 2020

Location: Ottawa

 

CASTED: Emergency is the “hands-on” ED orthopedics course specifically designed for ED physicians and staff.
Case-based lectures are combined with “hands-on” casting and splinting. The lectures focus on cases that are common, commonly missed, and commonly mismanaged.
The case-based lectures also help you understand ED orthopedic principles. Knowing what questions to ask, what to look for on exam and how to order and interpet x-rays will help you on your next shift. You will develop better management plans for your patients. CASTED: Emergency will give you a more complete handle on ED immobilization options, which injuries are operative, which fractures are low-risk, which need moulding, how quickly ortho needs to see in follow-up, etc.

The ‘hands-on’ components begin with demonstrations of ED ortho reductions and immoblization techniques. Then, as you put on casts and splints, CASTED faculty supervise closely and offer instruction on the proper application and moulding techniques. The lectures will help you understand when to reduce and why moulding may be needed. The ‘hands-on’ sessions give you the practical side. Knowing ‘how to’ is helpful; but the supervised practice ensures you have the confidence you are doing it right!
By the end of the course, we want you to better understand ED ortho, not just memorize what to do. You are promised a course full of humour and numerous clinical pearls you will use on your next shift!

 

Upon completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Describe ED orthopedic principles vital to proper assessments and diagnosis;
2. Describe and practice ED reductions and immobilization;
3. Describe how to stratify ED patients with acute orthopedic injuries, so as to understand when and how quickly orthopedic surgeons need to be involved.
