- Archived March 2021
- During the coronavirus pandemic, surgeons and patients will have difficult choices to make about management options for a wide variety of injuries and urgent conditions. They will need to balance optimum treatment of a patient’s injury or condition against clinical safety and resources. The BOA supports reasoned pragmatic decision-making in these extraordinary circumstances and acknowledges that non-operative management of many injuries and reduced face to face follow up will be increasingly the norm.
