Casts applied by surgeons could be better. The traditional approach to training in the art of casting has been inadequate, and British Casting Certificate holders are encouraged to engage with surgical training and assessment . The BOA have created a 10 minute screencast for holders of the BCC and T&O trainees, aimed at collaboration between the two groups to drive up standards of casting in the UK. Viewers are briefed about how best to use the T&O curriculum and one of the ISCP workplace based assessments to structure learning and assessment.
