#TheCoronaCast Ep13. Recovery Planning & Resuming a 'New Normal' Orthopaedic Service Post-Lockdown with Mr Fergal Monsell, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon & BOA/BSCOS Board Member
As we enter our third month of the UK lockdown, we have had very little developments in our understanding of how the Coronavirus Pandemic will be defeated and how we can recover in the healthcare sector. With the hope to avoid a second peak of COVID patients, elective surgery was halted initially, with the hope to resume by mid-Summer. There has been some guidance from the BOA and NHS England with regards returning to some normality, however questions remain with regards to the safety of elective surgery, recovery, face-to-face consultations and its undenied impact on the healthcare workforce that have been pushed to their limits over the last few months. In this episode, #TheCoronaCast host, Mr Pranai Buddhdev, Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons sits with Mr Fergal Monsell from Bristol Childrens Hospital and BOA/BSCOS Council Member to discuss some of the unanswered concerns and questions of both clinicians and their patients - how do we consent? what testing should be in place? what happens to our high-risk patients? As well as learning how to address the lapse in surgical training for junior staff, they also discuss what positives have come from Coronavirus, and how this will define the practice of the specialty in the future.  PLEASE rate the podcast, Comment,like & suscribe, Follow on Twitter, Instagram & LinkedIn @paedipods & @Pranai_B Useful Links:  Consent in the Post-COVID Era by Bertie Leigh in BOA Transient Journal of Trauma & Orthopaedics & Coronavirus  - https://www.boa.ac.uk/policy-engagement/journal-of-trauma-orthopaedics/journal-of-trauma-orthopaedics-and-coronavirus/consent-in-the-post-covid-19-era.html

#ThePaedipodsCast Ep 4. Professor Reinhard Graf, Inventor of Hip USS for DDH, Austria
Professor Reinhard Graf is a world-renowned figure in the medical field, having invented and developed hip ultrasound for the diagnosis and assessment of DDH in babies. Hear about how he started off as a general practitioner and paediatric general surgeon prior to landing in the field of orthopaedics, and how almost through serendipity he developed hip ultrasound and convinced the world of its use. He explains how universal screening was adopted in countries such as Austria, Switzerland & Germany, and what restricts its global application, the development of the Graf Classification, the importance of education and standardisation of the skill and where the future lies involving artificial intelligence and machine-learning. His anecdotal style is humourous and brilliant - please enjoy and suscribe to our podcast on all major platforms.  Professor Graf Ultrasound Course Guide can be found at: http://graf-hipsonography.com Professor Graf will next be teaching at the DDH Hip USS Course in Cardiff June 2020, more details at: https://www.doctorsacademy.org/msk-graf-uss Please follow us on instagram & twitter: @paedipods Tune in for the next episode on Sunday March 1st 2020.
