Brought to you in partnership by the American Association for Surgery of the Hand (AAHS), the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA), and AAOS, this one-hour event addresses quality, safety, and value standards in the treatment of pediatric upper extremity conditions. Faculty share how the concepts of variation and standardization play out in a field as diverse and specialized as pediatric upper extremity surgery, with topics including:
· Standardization for fingertip injuries, supracondylar fractures, and antibiotics
· Variation in treatment of forearm fractures and brachial plexus birth injuries
· Treatment of pediatric wrist ganglion cysts: does one size fit all?
Wrap up the event with dedicated time for Q&A discussion with your webinar faculty.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
1. Understand where variations in care exist in the treatment of pediatric upper extremity conditions.
2. Discuss opportunities to decrease variation in common conditions such as fingertip injuries, ganglion cysts, and supracondylar fractures.
3. Question where standardization may not be a useful goal, such as in the routine use of preoperative antibiotics.
4. Understand how the principles of standardization may be helpful even for complex conditions such as the treatment of brachial plexus birth injuries.
