ED Affiliation Lecture: Tips & Tricks to Improve Orthopaedic Trauma Care in Children
This course was designed because pediatric patients offer unique challenges when seen in an Emergency Department. Often, pediatric patients will seek care at the closest community ED, who are not as familiar with caring for pediatric patients. This lecture will specifically cover the topic of pediatric patients who present to community EDs with isolated limb trauma.
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to:
- identify initial management of pediatric patients with isolated limb trauma.
- identify appropriate referral mechanisms to urgent cares, orthopedic offices, ortho urgent care and the emergency department.
