CASTED: Emergency is ruthlessly clinical – a practical, high-yield, practice-changing ED orthopedics course. By the end of the course, you will be better at diagnosing subtle but serious ED ortho injuries. You will have a much better approach to ED reductions and immobilization. And you will have a better sense of when ortho needs to get involved (and why!).  The course will be valuable to anyone who manages ED patients with acute injuries – from the rural to urban.

CASTED has been presented over 300 times – mostly across Canada but also in the US and UK. Numerous clinical pearls are offered on assessment, special x-rays to consider, subtle clues to recognize ‘red flag’ patients and knowing who needs a reduction. Get comprehensive ‘hands-on’ instruction, then practice various reduction, immobilization, and moulding techniques. A detailed physical exam is reviewed for the various joints.

CASTED is focused on clinically relevant teaching points. We want you to understand ED ortho – not just memorize it! By the end of the course, you will have significantly increased confidence and skills for use on your next shift!

This program meets the accreditation criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been accredited for up to 27 Mainpro+ credits. (3 credits/hour; 1-day course = 27;)
