Summary

Deborah Eastwood: Clubfoot, (Congenital talipes equinovarus -CTEV), and DDH (Developmental dysplasia of the hip) are two of the most common congenital deformities affecting the musculoskeletal system. Management of both conditions is essentially conservative in the first instance and only operative for the late presenting cases or those that failed to respond to conservative treatment. The Ponseti method for clubfoot is now being the gold standard for treatment in many regions.The early detection of DDH can be difficult but ultrasound screening is becoming more portable and when combined with clinical examination and early splinting, most babies do very well as do most babies with CTEV. Given the potential for life-long disability if not appropriately treated, it's crucial for healthcare professionals to have the latest knowledge and skill sets for optimal patient care. Deepa Bose: Foot and ankle trauma is a prevalent clinical presentation, encompassing a spectrum from simple sprains to complex fractures. Given the functional importance of the foot and ankle, accurate diagnosis, and timely management are crucial to prevent long-term morbidity and ensure optimal patient outcomes.

Learning objectives

Club Foot: Clinical Assessment Proficiency: By the session's end, attendees will be competent in systematically evaluating the severity and type of clubfoot, effectively distinguishing between positional deformities and true congenital clubfoot. Intervention Mastery: Participants will be skilled in initiating and overseeing the Ponseti method, making necessary adjustments in response to individual patient progress and feedback. Interdisciplinary Coordination: Attendees will demonstrate the capability to effectively collaborate with physical therapists, orthopedic technicians, and other specialists, ensuring comprehensive care for clubfoot patients. Follow-Up and Monitoring: Participants will exhibit a systematic approach to monitoring treated clubfoot cases, identifying signs of relapse or complications early, and modifying treatment plans accordingly. Foot and Ankle Trauma: Assessment Expertise: By the conclusion of this session, participants will demonstrate competency in conducting thorough clinical examinations, accurately assessing the severity and type of foot and ankle injuries. Intervention Proficiency: Attendees will be skilled in selecting and initiating the most appropriate intervention, be it surgical or conservative, based on the specific foot or ankle trauma presented. Interdisciplinary Collaboration: Participants will demonstrate effective teamwork abilities, liaising seamlessly with radiologists, physiotherapists, and other relevant specialists to ensure an integrated care approach. Rehabilitation Mastery: Following the session, attendees will competently design and oversee tailored rehabilitation plans, focusing on restoring function, strength, and mobility after foot and ankle injuries. Patient Communication Skills: Participants will effectively relay prognosis, management strategies, and potential complications to patients, ensuring that they are well-informed and actively participating in their recovery journey. Patient and Caregiver Guidance: After attending, participants will competently communicate the clubfoot treatment journey to patients and caregivers, guiding them on home care, bracing compliance, and setting realistic expectations.
