  • Virtual Event; Login Information to be Shared After Registration Completed Maps & Directions

Statement of Need
Orthopedic standards of care assist primary care providers in the treatment of common injuries. When a patient may benefit from a more specialized level of care following an injury, appropriate protocols and referrals help achieve the best possible outcome. This course will help participants identify common injuries in the primary care setting and manage them with the appropriate standards of care.

Activity Goals
Orthopedic injuries are on the rise and are a common reason for emergency department visits. These injuries should be diagnosed promptly and accurately to optimize patient outcomes. This activity will review issues that can be effectively managed by a primary care provider versus those needing to be referred to a specialist, and analyze how an interdisciplinary team approach can improve care and outcomes among orthopedic patients.

Learning Objectives
After attending this activity, participants will be able to:
• Describe how to diagnose and treat common problems in the following orthopedic areas: neck and back; foot and ankle; sports medicine; hip and knee; and hand, wrist, and elbow
• Identify issues that can be effectively managed by a primary caregiver versus those needing to be referred to an orthopedist
• Explain how to safely treat orthopedic problems that are appropriately treated by a primary care provider following the recommended guidelines.
• Analyze how an interdisciplinary team approach to orthopedic problems can improve patient care

Intended Audience
This activity is specifically designed for those involved in the following settings: Internal/Family Medicine, Sports Medicine, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Emergency Medicine. It is also designed for professionals working in academic settings, including athletic trainers and coaches, as well as other health professionals interested in the diagnosis and management of common orthopedic injuries.
