Ortho has to be the one of the main subjects new NPs stress about. Experienced NPs, too. It's one of the specialty fields that has an incredibly broad depth of knowledge, so it's a lot to learn in a short period of time.

If you're feeling like you don't know enough, and still have to see patients with ortho complaints (especially in telemedicine)-- here are the "hacks" of primary care ortho management.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • The main 4 steps to managing almost all ortho complaints in primary care
  • The top red flags overarching most ortho complaints
  • How to triage ortho complaints
  • When to send to ortho (and what to do first)
