Training Videos

The Clinical Procedures Unit has produced seven training videos on surgical techniques including management of wounds, tendon and soft tissue injuries, head and spinal injuries as well as various fractures of the pelvis, upper and lower limbs. These videos serve as a visual support to the WHO Surgical Care at the District Hospital manual and are meant to be used for training purposes to demonstrate the management of the most common surgical emergencies. The videos are intended for general duty doctors in district hospitals and deal with orthopaedics and traumatology interventions.
