Real-world scenarios. Relevant learning.
Build your critical thinking and problem-solving skills with this program based on real patient cases.
In this journal-based CME activity, you will review the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of posterior shoulder instability by following an evolving patient case scenario based on a recent article from the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS).
After the reading, you will complete an assessment to test your orthopaedic knowledge, problem solving, and clinical decision-making skills.
As a result of completing this program, I am able to:
- Describe the pathophysiology and etiology of posterior glenohumeral instability, including epidemiology and common mechanisms of injury.
- Discuss the functional anatomy of the shoulder with regard to maintenance of glenohumeral stability, including posterior stability.
- Explain the appropriate history and physical examination for a patient with symptoms of posterior glenohumeral instability.
- Identify imaging studies that aid in the diagnosis of posterior glenohumeral instability.
- Review nonsurgical treatment options for patients with posterior glenohumeral instability, including indications, rehabilitation protocols, and physical therapy goals.
- Review surgical treatment options for patients with posterior glenohumeral instability, including open and arthroscopic soft-tissue procedures and procedures involving bone.
