During the August 2021 Orthopaedic Trauma Journal Club, participants discussed outcomes of musculoskeletal trauma, delivery of orthopedic trauma care, evaluation of the polytrauma patient and management of the polytrauma patient and damage control orthopedic care. The topic of discussion surrounded the evolution of the way we deliver care to the polytraumatized patient as well as the value that an orthopedic traumatologist can bring to an institution.
