Intended users

This series of trauma case studies is intended for Medical Students, General Practitioners and others, who are not Orthopaedic specialists, but have to manage trauma.

In the discussion on the final view page, it is assumed that the practitioner responsible for the initial care of the patient has no instrumentation for definitive internal fixations, or the expertise to do anything beyond necessary emergency procedures. It is assumed that these patients can be referred on for subsequent procedures.
