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 principles of management for humeral shaft fractures 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.
