BFIRST BSSH Hand Trauma Surgery Online Symposium

13:00 – 17:00 (UK time), 23 May 2020
Featuring Professor Don Lalonde on WALANT

We are living in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 crisis is an invisible enemy that has dominated every area of the globe, causing huge changes to the ways we practice Medicine. 

Using teleconferencing facilities, we have decided to organise a half day Hand trauma symposium, focused on delivering care for our hand patients during the COVID-19 crisis. This seminar is aimed specifically at our BFIRST and BSSH Overseas friends and colleagues and will look at topics like Wide Awake Hand Surgery with No Tourniquet (WALANT), redesign of a hand trauma pathway and UK guidelines, as well as useful technologies like the Hand Trauma App and Hand Therapy App.

We are very honored to have with us, Professor Don Lalonde, who will present the lecture on WALANT, and lead the discussion on its uses and applications where there is a lack of resources. The webinar will also feature an expert panel of speakers including Nikolas Jagodzinski, Dave Bell, Barbara Jemec, Sarah Tucker, Jonathan Jones and Wee Lam.

This webinar will cover the following points:
– Current BSSH, BOA and BAPRAS guidelines 
– Redesigning the Hand Surgery/Therapy service during COVID
– Wide awake hand surgery and evidence-based sterility 
– Hand fractures and Soft tissue cover 
– Complex Cases discussion
