Show Notes

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, Marc and Mo explore both the challenges and opportunities that have risen from the new abundance of online information and what this means for our pursuit of evidence-based medicine in surgery.

If you have any comments, questions, or topics you would like us to cover, please feel free to reach out so we can read your messages and possibly answer your questions during the next episode of OrthoJOE. You can contact us through our respective websites (MyOrthoEvidence and JBJS). We intend on having a mailbag portion of the show where we answer questions posed by our listeners.

Talking Points:

  • Traditional textbooks and journal articles in digital form look and operate similar to the printed version
  • Application of machine learning to scientific research and clinical practice
  • Future scientific paper: computational notebooks creating opportunity for a "living journal”
  • Point-of-care, data-driven tools of the future

On-Field Management of Sports Injuries, with special guests Bradley Nelson and Moin Khan

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guests and sports medicine experts Bradley Nelson (Head of Athletic Medicine at the University of Minnesota) and Moin Khan (Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at McMaster University) in an informative discussion on the on-field management of sports injuries. What kind of preparation is ideal for those interested in pursuing a career that involves sports medicine coverage? What can be learned from mentors, including faculty and senior athletic trainers? What types of injuries and medical issues should one should expect to see? What pre-game preparation is needed in terms of communicating and interacting with trainers and EMS, reviewing the emergency action plan, and becoming familiar with the equipment, supports, and facilities that will available during a game? What risks, liabilities, and special considerations are potential areas of concern when on the sidelines, particularly when covering high school games involving minors?
