Musculoskeletal care: Teach patients with CD-ROM program

Patient education is vital to quality patient care. The new Musculoskeletal Care Patient Education Collection on CD-ROM contains 400 descriptions and 200 full-color illustrations of orthopaedic conditions, including arthritis; neck, back and heel pain; shoulder injuries and treatments; hip fractures; knee replacements; osteoporosis prevention; pediatric fractures; and sports-related injuries. Also included is a selection of topics presented in Spanish. With the program, orthopaedic surgeons can retrieve information and share it with their patients-on-screen, or as a printout. An added feature is the ability to customize the printouts with your practice information. The program also contains three videos, including "Overcoming Low Back Pain," "Growing Out of It;" and "Fracture Healing and Cast Care." The cost to AAOS members is $69, plus shipping and handling.
