Webinar series: nonoperative trauma care for trauma and orthopedic surgeons and residents

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown measures in Bangladesh, surgeries for orthopedic patients have been limited to emergencies. Non-essential surgeries are being postponed and orthopedic surgeons are prioritizing nonoperative fracture treatments.

To advance our mission of improving the care of the injured, the AO Alliance Bangladesh Steering Committee has launched a webinar series for trauma and orthopedic surgeons and residents on nonoperative fracture treatment techniques.

The first live webinar took place on 15 May and attracted over 120 participants.

The webinar will be English and is open to participants from other countries. Discussions following the presentation may, however, be in Bangla.
