CPD: 6 credits awarded

A new one-day multidisciplinary meeting for all clinicians who treat paediatric orthopaedic patients, including surgeons, physiotherapists, nurses, occupational therapists and physician’s associates. We plan to skip the basics and the free papers in favour of succinct clinical updates and lively, relevant debate. The meeting aims to provide a forum where clinicians involved in the care of paediatric orthopaedic patients can hear about the latest developments and thinking on specific areas of practice we all find difficult.

The four areas chosen for this meeting are:

  • The different surgical options for severe hip pathology in paediatric patients
  • The new challenges of lengthening intramedullary nails in limb reconstruction
  • Controversies in paediatric trauma
  • Controversies in the orthopaedic management of cerebral palsy

By the end of the meeting participants will have taken part in extensive and detailed discussion of these four areas, which will allow them to develop their own practice in an evidence-based, logical, and up-to-date manner. They will have a better understanding of the controversies, the challenges and pitfalls, the resources needed, and (hopefully!) of consensus where that is appropriate. They will also have the opportunity to meet other practitioners in the field and build networks for referral and working together in the future.
