September 1995 AAOS Report

Cast Care translated into Spanish

A new Spanish version of the patient education brochure, Cast Care, has been developed by the Academy. It is the first of the Academy's patient education brochures to be translated into Spanish. The brochure also has been revised and redesigned by the Committee on Public Education. Cast Care explains the differences between a splint and cast; how they are applied; materials used in splints and casts; instructions on caring for a cast; warning signs following splint or cast application; and proper cast removal. To order the English or Spanish version of Cast Care, contact the Academy's customer service department, (800) 626-6726.
