Northern New England -Paediatric Wrist Buckle Fracture Management
Traditionally, in our region, paediatric patients with simple buckle fractures of the wrist are treated with a back slab plaster cast and referred to Fracture Clinic for follow up care. Evidence now shows that these patients have similar outcomes when managed in a simple removable wrist brace, with no need for Fracture Clinic review or repeat x-rays.
We have adopted this new management pathway for paediatric wrist buckle fractures at Armidale Hospital. This webinar will be an opportunity for local GPs to find out more about the pathway and putting it into practice.
