EFORT 2016 Congress Fees
EFORT decided to introduce a membership fee to attend the EFORT annual congresses. This category has already been implemented for the EFORT Annual Congress Geneva 2016 which will take place from 1 to 3 June.

All individual members of the National Member Societies, being ordinary member of EFORT, can benefit from the “physician member fee” when registering for the EFORT annual congress.
You will find more information about different registration fees for Geneva 2016 on the congress website and on the fact sheet at the links below.
EFORT Open Reviews is the official journal of the European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT) and is published in partnership with The British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery.

EFORT Open Reviews publishes high-quality instructional review articles across the whole field of orthopaedics and traumatology. Commissioned, peer-reviewed articles from international experts summarize current knowledge and practice in orthopaedics, with the aim of providing systematic coverage of the field. All articles undergo rigorous scientific editing to ensure the highest standards of accuracy and clarity.

One print issue containing a selection of papers from the journal will be published each year to coincide with the EFORT Annual Congress. 

EFORT Trauma Group 2015
Distal Radius Fracture Survey

The Trauma Group of EFORT is pleased to advise that a second survey has been designed ‘DISTAL RADIO FRACTURES’ by Prof Morten Schultz Larsen, Head of Trauma Section, Associate Professor Department of Orthopaedics, Odense University Hospital, Denmark on behalf of the EFORT Trauma Group and Chaired by Prof Ulrich Stöckle (BG Unfallklinik Tübingen Klinik für Unfall- und Wiederherstellungschirurgie, Germany)

This is in support of a global effort launched by WHO and the Bone and Joint Decade to create greater attention to Trauma care. The scope is to collect data on treatment options for similar fractures among all EFORT member states to understand the differences in daily practice within Europe.  Although quality of treatments would still not be totally reflected, these surveys would contribute to identify new leading ‘actors’ in the trauma field.  Ultimately, the results could lead to a compendium of recommendations giving the possibility to define some European treatment standards.
We appreciate your help in this and have confidence that your members will take the time to complete the survey to enable a successful outcome.
