If You Treat Hand Injuries, Consider Attending a Conference Provided by FORE to Improve Your Approach
If your medical practice includes a significant amount of hand injury treatment, a conference that focuses exclusively on upper extremity care can help you add new techniques to your repertoire. FORE – the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education – provides a variety of accredited courses for hand and upper extremity treatment, offering you several opportunities to learn new clinical skills.
Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery is one such hand conference that is also one of FORE’s most popular courses. This conferences focuses on topics such as:
- Fracture care
- Arthritis treatment
- Dupuytren’s contracture treatment
You can discuss various hand therapies for both adult and pediatric patients, taking an in-depth look into the indications and contraindications for surgical treatment, the potential complications of various interventions, and the pros and cons of different orthopedic tools. You can also discuss novel surgical approaches such as targeted muscle renervation, intercarpal fusion and volar/dorsal plating, helping you offer your patients the latest advances in hand care. Additionally, conference participation can be claimed toward your professional CME requirements, as every FORE event is accredited by the ACCME.
