Course description

Online precourse self-assessment prepares participants for the course and allows the faculty to tailor the course

to the needs of the participants. Before attending the course, participants are expected to complete an online module on fracture reduction.

The course will be taught in a modular format. Each module consists of several evidence-based lectures, which will cover the key information required. In practical exercises participants will be trained in the application of various techniques. Discussing cases in small groups will help participants to understand decision-making and management skills.

After the course, an online post course self-assessment will provide participants an opportunity to review the important topics from the course. In order to support self-directed learning, a range of additional online resources will be offered.
