Registration is now open for the next BOA Ortho Update Course with a brand new face-to-face format. For orthopaedic trainees at all levels and SAS surgeons, this updated course will give you the opportunity to access new understanding and support your preparation for the FRCS exam.
It is a course of two halves. The BOA are continuing with the popular critical condition CBDs, which this year will cover neurovascular injuries, compartment syndrome and physiological response to trauma. There will also be a new quick-fire trauma meeting called “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” which will look at basic science of trauma, biomechanics and complications.
The other half of the course will be practical simulation sessions. Each candidate will participate in a trauma moulage to fulfil the trauma resuscitation CEX. There will also be spinal trauma assessments that can be counted towards the “initial assessment and referral of spinal trauma” critical condition.
