Abstract

This report helps characterize fracture management by family physicians. The findings suggest that family physicians can care for a broad range of acute fractures with healing times at least comparable with the standard of care described by orthopedists. A prospective trial would be necessary to assess fully clinical outcomes resulting from specific fracture management. That distal extremity fractures predominated should guide educators in their decision regarding orthopedic training.
