13th annual Bethune Roundtable for International Surgery
The 13th annual Bethune Roundtable for International Surgery is being held in Vancouver from May 10-12, 2013. This unique conference brings together surgeons from Canada and from developing countries to discuss issues of surgical care in low resource countries. This event would be of relevance to orthopaedic surgeons with an interest in development work and overseas orthopaedic surgery delivery.

Associated with the Bethune Roundtable this year is an instructor’s course on Essential Osteomyelitis Management. Chronic hematogenous osteomyelitis in children and young adults is all-pervasive in lower income countries. This course, sponsored by the Canadian Network for International Surgery, aims to train surgeons to teach practical hands-on surgical skills using low fidelity simulators to first and second-year general and orthopaedic surgery residents in training programs in Africa. This course would be of interest and relevance to orthopaedic surgeons already committed to volunteer work in lesser developed countries, or those who might be interested in becoming engaged in future.

Frais de stationnement à l'hôpital: Un stress additionnel pour les malades
Les frais de stationnement imposés par les hôpitaux représentent un stress pour les patients et leurs proches, allant même jusqu'à réduire le nombre et la durée des visites, selon une enquête effectuée par l'équipe de l'émission Marketplace, du réseau anglais de Radio-Canada. C'est du moins le cas pour plus de la moitié des 1000 Canadiens sondés par Marketplace dans cinq provinces: L'Alberta, la Saskatchewan, le Manitoba, l'Ontario et la Nouvelle-Écosse.

Hospitals struggling to keep up with need for hip and knee replacement surgeries
Toronto Star
Hip and knee replacements in Canada are rising at a rate that is outpacing the ability of hospitals to keep up with demand, according to a report released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. An aging population, rising rates of obesity and osteoarthritis, and improvements in surgical practice and technology that make more people candidates for the procedure are all contributing to the rising need for joint replacement surgeries.
