Overview: This is not a clinical course.

Program Objectives: After completing the CME instructional media program, the learner should be better able to devise and refine a perspective on current treatment recommendations, updates, and advances pertinent to orthopaedic practice; evaluate the implications of the learned information as it pertains to patient factors that contribute to poor outcomes and formulate strategies to prevent them; and apply current trends, standards, and best practices into the learner’s own practice.
