Fracture classification, acute management and decision making
This webinar aims to improve the confidence of clinicians when presented with a patient that has suffered a fracture injury - mostly discussing appendicular fractures but also touching on axial fractures as well. We will cover the various fracture classification schemes and how the classification can influence the treatment course for the patient, including immediate stabilisation of the patient and management of the fracture site. We will then discuss decision making schemes for treatment of the fracture, as well as delving into important prognostic factors that may need to be addressed with owners.
