Evidence-Based Musculoskeletal Care (External Fixation)
This is a 5-day taught module followed by an assignment and is available as a stand-alone PGA or as a module within the MSC trauma and orthopaedic surgery or an optional module in the MSc health sciences programme; this module aims to give students: a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in the science of external fixation of diaphyseal and metaphyseal fractures and deformity; a critical understanding of when and how to use this technique: an evidence-based appreciation of the risks and likely benefits of this compared with other treatment options; which all contributes to the broader aim to influence clinicians to use a critical and scientifically robust approach to planning patient care; students have on-going access to other professionals during the period of the module in order to facilitate their learning.
