Basic values such as competence, humane treatment and a responsible use of the ongoing medical progress are indispensable. As we strive to provide sustainable healthcare on the highest international level doctors must endure increasing economic pressure, misguided management in the political sphere and scarcity of personnel.
The motto "no knowledge without values" proposes that the actions as orthopedic and trauma surgeons must always incorporate the highest standard of evidence and values.
It is the aim to promote the exchange of knowledge and provide sufficient opportunity for dialogue on evidence and value-based medicine. The main target groups are generalists and specialists, residents as well as experienced experts alike from all subfields of O and T.
