    Resumen

    VERMAAK, DP  y  POTGIETER, JWT. The evaluation of a new general trauma course with an orthopaedic focus for newly qualified doctors. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.2, pp. 68-70. ISSN 1681-150X.

    Management of trauma patients by junior doctors is common in South Africa. Recent literature published in South Africa and observations of various senior doctors have raised the concern that the newly qualified doctor lacks both knowledge and skill in the management of trauma patients, and especially those with orthopaedic injuries. A general trauma course with an orthopaedic focus was developed for newly qualified doctors to address these concerns. The course was assessed by using a questionnaire before and after the course. The post-course questionnaire showed significant improvement in newly qualified doctors' knowledge of trauma management.
