We are pleased to announce that we will be offering our CASTED: Emergency 2 day course in Oshawa, ON on Thu Oct 23 and Fri Oct 24, 2014.
CASTED: Emergency is the ‘hands-on’ ED orthopedics course. This course is a two day, Mainpro-C accredited course, designed specifically for ED physicians and staff.
Case-based lectures highlight ED orthopedic principles and clinical pearls while reviewing over 80 pediatric and adult extremity injuries.
Focus is on the common, the commonly missed, and the commonly mismanaged.
Based on demand from registrants, we have added a full second day to expand the cases, the demos and, most importantly, your practice time.
In addition to the dozens of case reviews, over 8 hours of ‘hands-on’ time provides extensive demonstration and practice of reduction and casting/splinting techniques. Numerous tips are offered on splinting, moulding and reduction. An ED relevant MSK physical exam is reviewed in detail. Closely supervised ‘hands-on’ practice ensures you will have the confidence you are doing it right!
By the end of the day, you will know …
- ‘red flags’ to beware of
- many physical exam pearls
- which patients need a reduction
- how to properly reduce, immobilize and mould
- which patients need follow-up
- and how quickly they need to be seen.
You are promised 2 days full of humour and numerous clinical pearls you will use on your next shift!
The course will be held at:
1 Hospital Court
Each day will run from 8am to ~4:30pm.
Registration fees are:
- $1475 – MD
