Primary care, urgent care, and emergency room physicians, as well as other healthcare providers, are often on the front line in the initial care and management of orthopaedic problems. This course is intended to enhance the attendees’ knowledge base regarding common orthopaedic problems and increase their confidence in managing these issues. This 25th Annual course will provide a complete review of basic principles of orthopaedic care. Particular attention will be paid to the diagnosis and initial management of the orthopaedic problems most commonly seen by the primary care giver. Formal question and answer periods will follow each session, paneled by the faculty. We will feature daily “Spotlight Lectures” on hot topics related to orthopaedic issues and updates.

This conference will provide physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers with evidence-based rationale for assessment and treatment techniques for various musculoskeletal conditions. Through didactic presentation, video, case study discussion, and hands-on demonstration, attendees will expand their skills, as well as be able to return to the clinic and incorporate new treatment skills into existing expertise.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

General Sessions:
• Describe how to diagnose common patient problems in the following orthopaedic areas: trauma, spine, foot and ankle, pediatrics, sports medicine, upper extremity, and adult hip and knee;
• Distinguish patient issues that need to be referred to an orthopaedist from those best treated by a primary caregiver;
• Explain how to safely manage orthopaedic problems that are appropriately treated by a primary caregiver;
• Name key elements of the orthopaedic physical examination;
• State the most appropriate imaging modalities of common orthopaedic problems;
• Develop strategies to efficiently maximize the value of orthopaedic services through an interdisciplinary, team-based approach to patient care.
