Webinar Director: Andrea Bauer, MD
This webinar is sponsored jointly by the American Association for Surgery of the Hand and the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America. Quality, safety, and value is an important topic in surgery today, with increasing emphasis placed on standardization of care. In this webinar, we will address how the concepts of variation and standardization play out in a field as diverse and specialized as pediatric upper extremity surgery.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
· Understand where variations in care exist in the treatment of pediatric upper extremity conditions.
· Discuss opportunities to decrease variation in common conditions such as fingertip injuries, ganglion cysts, and supracondylar fractures.
· Question where standardization may not be a useful goal, such as in the routine use of preoperative antibiotics.
· Understand how the principles of standardization may be helpful even for complex conditions such as the treatment of brachial plexus birth injuries.
