Like patient simulation, this workshop is a practical learning environment in which EMS supervisors and managers will be challenged to tackle real-life ambulance service personnel and operational issues. The participants will be provided with two fact-based scenarios prior to arriving to the workshop and asked to complete a brief outline of how they would approach each issue. During the workshop, EMS Attorneys Scott Moore and Brian Werfel will facilitate an interactive practical discussion and exercises with the participants, challenging common industry practices while highlighting the most strategic investigative procedures and techniques. Lastly, they will outline and assist the EMS Supervisors with drafting comprehensive, and legally defensible, investigative report.

Trauma Basic Principles is organized by AO North America and will be held from Jan 17 - 20, 2019 at Sheraton Charlotte Hotel, Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America. Course Summary: This Basic Course is designed to provide the participant with a fundamental knowledge of operative treatment of fractures according to the AO principles. The four guiding AO principles of fracture fixation are: • Anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments, particularly in joint fractures • Stable fixation to ensure proper healing of the fracture allowing surrounding tissue to move and strengthen • Atraumatic surgical technique to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue • Early, pain-free mobilization returning the patient to function as soon as possible. The course will cover the concepts of absolute and relative stability, as applied in context, of the soft tissue injury for each limb segment’s major fracture types. This course is the foundation for the AONA curriculum, which teaches the surgeon how to manage trauma and trauma reconstruction. The goal of this course is not to advocate the treatment of all fractures by surgical fixation, but rather to help ensure that when surgery is carried out, that it is done properly based upon principles, appropriate preoperative planning, and decision making. Learning Objectives: Upon completion, participants should be able to: • Discuss the concepts of stability, their influence on bone healing, and how to apply implants to achieve appropriate stability • Plan a treatment based on assessment, imaging, classification, and decision making • Apply reduction techniques in fracture management with attention to the importance of the soft-tissue • Apply related psychomotor skills to the practical application of orthopedic implants to fractured bones • Plan the initial treatment of the polytraumatized patient Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
