Role Of Society

The aims of the Welsh Orthopaedic Society are to promote and direct the development of orthopaedic surgery, to foster and co-ordinate education, study and research in orthopaedic surgery, and to disseminate knowledge of orthopaedic surgery among members of the Medical and allied health professions.

With these aims, it is important to conduct good research, to be aware of well conducted research methods and to recognise when they have been achieved. We are increasingly being asked to modify our practice based on evidence and for this reason the ability to critically analyse published papers should be encouraged.
