Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo focus on 2 compelling topics that were covered in recent articles. The first part of the discussion focuses on the emergence of Generation Z in orthopaedics (and how this generation differs from both Millennials and Generation Y), while the second part focuses on the treatment of displaced femoral neck fractures with arthroplasty, with a call for additional work in this area.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

How do diversity, equity, and inclusion contribute to excellence, creativity, competitive advantage, and relevance in both orthopaedic surgery and scientific publishing? How can we achieve greater diversity among authors, editors, and reviewers at top journals? What specific steps can individuals and organizations take to create a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment that provides greater opportunities for under-represented groups?  We have a mailbag!

Cannabinoids in Orthopaedic Research (with special guest Jason Busse)

Orthopaedic patients are increasingly using cannabinoids for pain relief, but there is a lack of evidence-based data on this topic. In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Jason Busse (Associate Professor in the Department of Anesthesia at McMaster University, Director of the National Pain Centre, and Associate Director of the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research) in an illuminating discussion on the issues, opportunities, and challenges related to orthopaedic research into the use of cannabinoids. Some of the questions covered during the discussion include:   What are the most popular claims among cannabis proponents? What evidence is there to support these claims? Is there a causal relationship between cannabinoid use and decreased use of opioids and other prescription medications (i.e., a “substitution effect”)?  Much of the current evidence on cannabinoids is observational and anecdotal. What can we learn from this evidence, and how can such information inform future research?  What are the possible sources of funding for such research? What legal and regulatory hurdles must be overcome in order to allow us to perform properly designed RCTs into this topic? What challenges are faced by physicians when asked by patients about cannabinoids? What research is being done from the patient perspective? What is the roadmap for the future? How we will obtain quality evidence that will help clinicians and their patients to make decisions that are consistent with their values and preferences?    OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions ...

The Fragility Index: Why is it Important to the Practicing Orthopaedic Surgeon?

In this instructive episode, Mo and Marc focus on the concept of the Fragility Index—a method for evaluating the robustness of statistically significant dichotomous outcomes in RCTs—and discuss why this concept is relevant to practicing orthopaedic surgeons, who must routinely make real decisions in the clinic and OR based on their interpretation of the orthopaedic literature.  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected] Links: OrthoEvidence.
