TOPIC 1: Being “Hip” On Ortho.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP ^
- Assess if this is just another “found down” patient.
- Identify which fractures have the highest “missed” rate.
- Determine when ultrasound is better than a plain film.
TOPIC 2: Trauma and Orthopedic Pitfalls – Injuries Not To Be Missed.
Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP
- Detect subtle injuries that, unless treated, can have impact on long term musculoskeletal function.
- Determine and treat subtle presentation of severe traumatic and neurologic injuries.
- Distinguish particular injury patterns to avoid missing correlated injuries in a traumatically injured patient.
TOPIC 3: Adult Orthopedic Pearls and Pitfalls.
Orthopedic injuries are a frequently seen complaint in the Emergency Department. The vast majority are straightforward to diagnose and manage.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: EBM, COMP
- Detect the presentation and diagnostic pitfalls associated with posterior shoulder dislocation.
- Determine an appropriate work-up of compartment syndrome and distinguish the myriad ways it can present.
- Appraise those at risk for knee dislocation and relate the time-imperative for reduction.
- Demonstrate understanding of the work-up and evidence-based treatment for native hip dislocation, as well as occult hip fracture.
