This activity outlines the evaluation and treatment of ankle dislocation and reviews the role of the emergency department and orthopedic specialists in managing patients with this condition.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.
