I found this resource both interesting and enjoyable. I found this beneficial for my patient care as well as for self care, as I have recently fractured a bone in my foot and have had previous low trauma fractures.

This resource was very informative and I felt the presenter really knew there field of speciality. I did gain quite a bit more information than I originally thought within a 28 minute tutorial.
