Episode 17 – Managing Shoulder Injuries in the Emergency Department Fracture, Dislocation, and Overuse

Join hosts Jeff Nusbaum, MD, and Nachi Gupta, MD on this episode of EMplify as they take you through the June 2018 issue of Emergency Medicine Practice: Managing Shoulder Injuries in the Emergency Department Fracture, Dislocation, and Overuse.

This month, Richard Pescatore, director of clinical research at Crozer-Keystone Health System and clinical assistant professor at the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, along with Andrew Nyce, vice chairman and associate professor at cooper medical school of Rowan University reviewed just over 100 articles to come up with their evidence-based recommendations.

Their recommendations were then edited by John Munyak of Maimonides and Mark Silverberg of SUNY Downstate and Kings County Hospital.
