Practice Gaps and Needs

As surgical options for treating hand and upper extremities become more complex, the rapidly expanding publication of papers, updates on the current and evolving standards of care, and new approaches, is needed. Learners need strategies for assessing and determining appropriate treatment options for patients, as well as skills in delivering care patients presenting with increasingly complex medical comorbidities and associated conditions with hand and upper extremity surgery. Learners should be able to appropriately assess and treat patients with hand and upper extremity injuries in the emergency, inpatient, and outpatient consultative settings to expedite appropriate care. In addition, surgical skills and strategies must continuously be improved, and relevant technological advancement and new implants must be incorporated competently and thoughtfully into care delivery.

This learning activity will include expert updates in diagnostic processes, treatment options and recovery strategies in hand and upper extremity surgery.

Attendance at this educational activity is strongly encouraged for all faculty in the department of orthopedics and rehabilitation. Fellows and residents who are currently training within the department are required to attend. Planners for the event will communicate to potential registrants that attendance at this activity serves to provide them with high-yield best practices for hand and upper extremity, thus better equipping them to incorporate this knowledge into their practice. Also, we will communicate to learners that strategies for managing patient comorbidities and other patient-related barriers will be discussed so these barriers can be more easily overcome. References from presentations will be shared.

Elements of Competence

This activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, and practice-based learning and improvement. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competencies of values/ethics for interprofessional practice, roles/responsibilities, and teams and teamwork.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the needs of physicians, physician assistants, and nurses.

Learning Objectives

As a result of participation in this educational series, members of the healthcare team will:

  • Outline surgical options for treating upper extremity patients with peripheral nerve injuries, traumatic amputations, and sports injuries.
  • Discuss the role of nerve transfers in patients with neuropathic pain and peripheral nerve dysfunction.
  • Select appropriate reconstructive options for patients with extremity amputations.
