OrthOracle in the BOA’s Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics
We are proud to announce that Mark Herron, managing editor of OrthOracle, has authored an article on the development of the educational platform in this month’s edition of the Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics.
The JTO is the official journal of the British Orthopaedic Association, and will be available at this month’s BOA annual meeting in Birmingham, as well as online. In his final editorial, BOA Vice President Phil Turner notes that “the future undoubtedly is digital and we have a section of articles that show what can be achieved by persistence and entrepreneurial spirit. They demonstrate how we can utilise technology to inform, educate, assess and engage for the benefit of our profession and our patients.”
In the piece, ‘Optimising surgeons’ education to optimise patients’ outcomes’, Mark details the origins of OrthOracle — as a solution to demonstrating orthopaedic operative techniques and providing comprehensive education for surgeons and trainees. He also looks at what’s next for OrthOracle, and where orthopaedic education is going. Download the PDF and read the full article here.
