We all treat fractures, but do we understand how they heal? This workshop will help you with the tips and tricks of fracture management. It will assist with clinical reasoning of complex fractures of the hand and wrist. We will look at tissue injury, anatomy, biomechanics and healing. We will take an in depth look at fractures including imaging. We will examine mechanism of injury, differential diagnoses, their assessment and management.
