CASTED celebrates 100th course

CASTED celebrated its 100th course at the Emergency Medicine Update conference (www.emupdate.ca) on Wednesday, May 8. The award-winning course from North York General is changing the way these injuries are treated by teaching ED medical staff across Canada important tips when assessing patients as well the fine art of casting and splinting.

“At North York General, we have a unique patient care model where patients with minor fractures are cared for in the Fracture Clinic by an emergency physician and not an orthopedic surgeon,” says Dr. Arun Sayal, NYGH Emergency Department physician and founder of CASTED.
 
“Our orthopedic surgeons have taught our ED staff so much about managing patients with these injuries. What began as something our NYGH surgeons created internally has turned into a course that helps ED staff across the country.”
 
Since 2008, over 2,200 emergency staff members from Whitehorse to St. John's have attended the course. In 2011, CASTED won the College of Family Physicians of Canada's Continuing Professional Development Award.
