Improving outcomes from shoulder and elbow arthroplasty (Online)

Overview

Course convenors: Mr Jaime Candal-Couto, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust and Mr Amol Tambe, Consultant Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon, University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust

CPD: 6 credits

This meeting has been running annually since 2015 and serves as a forum for surgeons and AHPs who are involved in shoulder and elbow arthroplasty to meet, update and discuss different aspects of their practice. The ultimate goal is to jointly define strategies to improve the clinical outcomes for patients who undergo shoulder and elbow replacement surgery. Although the meeting this year will be run virtually due to the COVID19 pandemic, we will allocate breakout sessions for individual delegates to be involved in topic discussions. As in previous years the meeting will be comprehensive at discussion topics such as NJR, ODEP etc but this time we will place a special emphasis on defining strategies on long term prosthetic surveillance.
