BFIRST is still looking to expand on its educational webinar capacity during the COVID pandemic, we are therefore keen to advertise freely available educational opportunities from other organisations. Of note, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre continues to run a successful webinar series with topics including the conservative management of hand fractures and Wide Awake Local Anaesthesia No Tourniquet (WALANT) which may both be relevant to Reconstructive Surgeons around the world, especially during the COVID Pandemic. These webinars can be accessed here.
