AO Trauma NA Fireside Series 2021
Designed to serve the needs of surgeons 2-10 years in practice, the AO Trauma NA Fireside series will provide a pragmatic review of current best practices, effective surgical approaches, and tips and tricks to address the challenges of region-specific problem fractures and maximize patient outcomes.
Each of the twelve ninety-minute sessions was created in collaboration with a group of practicing surgeons across North America. Topics covered include femur fractures, terrible triads, tibial plateaus, and atypical ankle injuries.
The Fireside series emphasizes and encourages interaction with experts in the field. Participants can submit cases and/or share their perspectives on diagnosis, treatment, and management of fractures, and in turn receive input and feedback from AO NA faculty.
Upon completion of this series, participants will be able to Identify key aspects of fractures that must be addressed to achieve good patient outcomes Describe current best practices in critical steps of fracture management Employ evidence-based strategies in fracture treatments
