Saturday, December 13, 2014
Omni Providence Hotel, 1 West Exchange St., Providence, RI 02903
Patients with orthopedic problems frequently first present to a non-orthopedist. This CME activity is designed to enhance the identification, evaluation, familiarity and care of orthopedic related upper extremity conditions. Through a program designed around common case scenarios organized by patient chief complaint, the intention is to present information in a useful and applicable fashion. Thus, improving the ability to treat these conditions by those in attendance and to also improve understanding of operative problems necessitating earlier referral for surgical consultation and their post-operative care.
