Register now to secure your place!

Course Details

The course is divided in two halves. We are continuing with the popular critical condition Case Based Discussions (CBDs), which this year will cover neurovascular injuries, compartment syndrome and physiological response to trauma. The other half of the course will be practical simulation sessions, where each candidate will participate in a trauma moulage to fulfil the trauma resuscitation CEX. 

There will also be spinal trauma assessments that can be counted towards the ‘initial assessment and referral of spinal trauma’ critical condition.

Pre-course work

As part of the course you will be required to work through the Ortho Update learning log remotely, this can be completed at a time convenient to suit you before the session on Saturday 7th January. The learning log includes a set of activities and screencasts from expert speakers.

Learning Log: Sent to registered delegates in December


Course Fees

The course fee is £200 for BOA members (£300 for non-members).

Fees are payable at the time of registration. Your place is only treated as confirmed once payment is received.


A copy of the course programme will be added shortly.
