2018 UW Fall Visiting Professor Lectureship

Middleton, WI US
August 31, 2018

Statement of Need

Musculoskeletal trauma represents a significant proportion of the overall burden of traumatic injury nationally and globally. Prompt, high-quality care of musculoskeletal injuries has been shown to dramatically impact functional outcomes and reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with high-energy trauma. Increasing numbers of fellowship programs in orthopaedic trauma has resulted in improved patient access to fellowship-trained orthopaedic trauma surgeons, but nonetheless, many urgent orthopaedic conditions are initially managed by orthopaedic surgeons without advanced trauma training. Furthermore, the importance of high-quality, multi-center research in orthopaedic trauma is becoming increasingly clear. Patient-centered functional outcomes data has become the benchmark to which health care systems are being compared. In order to continue to improve the safety and quality of patient care, innovative research initiatives will be required.  This program will help providers learn how to apply fundamental principles to the acute management of orthopaedic trauma injuries such as open fractures, poly-trauma, compartment syndrome, and infection. Providers will also be given an opportunity to understand current multi-center orthopaedic trauma research programs and consider how similar outcomes research could impact their practices.  This CME activity will engage participants through interactive case discussions, reviews of current research initiatives, and targeted lectures on acute management and complications of orthopaedic trauma.

Intended Audience

This activity is designed for local and regional orthopedic surgeons, advanced practice providers, athletic trainers, nurses, residents, medical students, and physical and occupational therapists whose scope of practice includes diagnoses and treatment of patients with orthopaedic injuries.

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the areas of patient care and procedural skills, medical knowledge, and practice-based learning and improvement.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the importance of outcomes research and incoprorate measures into their daily practice.

2. Evaluate prolytrauma patients and select appropriate acute treatment interventions.

3. Diagnose acute compartment syndrome and understand basic principles of soft tissue management.

4. Recognize and manage common complications of orthopaedic trauma, including infection.
