About A Harvard Medical School, Department of Continuing Education Course
Mission Our continuing education mission is to optimize patient care. To this end, our program is designed to provide the most up to date information and strategies for physicians and allied health professionals.
Description This year’s Annual Advances in Arthroplasty Course marks the 41st presentation, making it the longest Continuing Education Course at Harvard Medical School. We will highlight today’s important challenges in the field of total joint arthroplasty surgery, the focus of this year’s course will be applying evidence-based medicine in optimizing clinical outcomes and quality of life in patients with hip and knee arthroplasty as well as early treatment of hip disease in young adults. Integration of clinical expertise from outstanding local, national and international faculty with the best available clinical evidence from research and national joint registry data into the decision making process for patient care will be presented to address clinical challenges relevant to everyday practice. They include femoroacetabular impingement, dislocation, alternate bearings materials in contemporary use and edge wear, sepsis, the optimization of DVT prophylaxis, and the use of navigation and emerging implant designs. The program includes the 10Th Annual Harris Oration by Robert Barrack, MD; keynote addresses; symposia; and the video vignettes and “live surgeries”. There will be ample time during the Meet the Faculty Sessions for you to discuss your challenging cases and for the discussion of the issues with the expert faculty in the field.
