Hare Traction: The Orthopaedic Surgeon’s Perspective
Here’s a curbside consult from Peter Cole MD, Chief of Orthopaedics at Regions Hospital. This is very interesting information for prehospital and ED providers. Length is 5:23.
This video was presented at Trauma Education: The Next Generation last September. Be sure to check out the upcoming 2014 conference materials at www.TETNG.org. Be sure to register now if you want to get continuing education credit for it!
This week, I’m going to post a series of videos from our Trauma Education: The Next Generation (TETNG) conference from last September. Regions Hospital, in conjunction with the Healthpartners Institute for Medical Education, created this conference to be new, different, and very TED-like. There were 20-minute live presentations, interspersed with fun 5-minute how-to videos. We dropped the staid and stodgy PowerPoint deck with tons of bullet points, moving to showing a few select graphic images that would drive home the point. No note taking!
I am the presenter for today’s video. It’s a little less than 20 minutes long, and deals with a problem that we all face: thinking we understand stuff that we really don’t. It’s another version of “you don’t know what you don’t know.” I talk about why this phenomenon occurs, and what you can do to avoid it.
