TSRH's Pediatric Orthopedic Education Series (EM2207B)
This webinar will review common musculoskeletal pathologies with an emphasis on virtual demonstrations for preforming a pediatric orthopedic examination. These new skills will enable the practitioner to perform a detailed musculoskeletal examination, and combine that information with additional musculoskeletal learning to diagnose and either treat or refer the patient to a qualified pediatric orthopedist.
This is a seminar for pediatricians, family practitioners, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses and allied health professionals.
- Recognize pediatric orthopedic conditions requiring immediate referral for evaluation and intervention and those which may safely be managed in the primary care provider' office.
- Employ pediatric orthopaedic examination skills and apply improved diagnostic skills towards the management of common orthopaedic problems that present to the pediatrician and/or family practitioners
- Employ improved diagnostic skills to identify/evaluate chronic pediatric orthopedic conditions including neuromuscular conditions (e.g. spina bifida or cerebral palsy) or other common extremity differences (e.g. congenital hand pathology or limb length difference).
