In this three session mini series you will learn the principles of stabilising fractures with bone plates. The majority of complications in fracture repair are the result of poor decision-making or poor technique. At the end of the mini series you should feel more confident to approach the simple fractures, make good decisions, avoid technical errors and therefore avoid complications. The series is split into three sessions covering the principles of bone plating, how to use non-locking plates and locking plates and finally avoiding and dealing with complications.

  • Join Scott Rutherford BVMS CertSAS DipECVS MRCVS for three 2-hour online sessions
  • Comprehensive notes to downloaded
  • Self-assessment quizzes to ‘release’ your 8 hours CPD certification (don’t worry, you can take them more than once if you don’t quite hit the mark first time)
  • A whole year’s access to recorded sessions for reviewing key points
  • Superb value for money – learn without travelling
  • Watch the recordings on your iPad!

*No traffic jams, accommodation hassles, pet or childcare, rota clashes, locum fees ……….. just great CPD and a valuable ongoing resource.

Course Feedback:

“Excellent course, It will enable me to choose the fixation method on more scientific grounds”

“Great discussion about complications and the detailed physiology of bone healing, also the description of the use of locking plates”

*Overseas customers will be charged VAT. However we will refund the VAT to you within 3 working days.
