Orthopedists at the London-based London-Based Orthopedics Group, which is based in the UK, are increasingly worried about the long-term effects of their work, with some admitting that the workload and stress associated with their work has taken its toll.
In recent years, the group has faced mounting pressure to do more with less, and its new chief executive, Tony O’Rourke, says the company needs to take the reins of the industry by changing the way it operates.
“A lot more people are working in orthopedists today because they are so well educated,” he told the BBC.
“They are getting into orthopedist schools, they are getting more training and they are spending more time in the community.”
O’Rouxyns view that the industry needs to be more transparent, to improve its business model, and has launched a series of initiatives, including the launch of a new website, the London Orthopedical Association, that he hopes will help improve the way the industry operates.
The group’s chief executive says he’s confident that his efforts will have a “significant impact” on orthopedical medicine, which has been hit hard by a series, including a new coronavirus pandemic and an increase in deaths due to preventable illnesses such as pneumonia and heart disease.
O’Reilly says that while there are many orthopedically trained people in the country, the profession is currently being dominated by a small number of graduates, with only a small fraction of the workforce making the most of their training.
“I think a lot of the orthopedicians we’ve been training are in their mid-20s and 30s, and they’re struggling,” he said.
“We’re hoping to change that by looking at different models that give them the opportunity to grow into a profession.”
Omran Abdul, CEO of the Orthopedism Education Trust, which promotes the profession and is lobbying to make more of the training available, says that the NHS is in a “very poor position” to provide training for the orthopaedic profession, given the financial strain that it is under.
“It’s a tough profession to work in,” Abdul told the ABC.
“I think it’s a difficult business to do.
You are not allowed to take on more and more staff because you can’t make more money.”
The NHS needs to look at how to increase the number of students, or apprenticeships, which are now available, and increase the amount of money that is being spent on training, he said, noting that there is a shortage of nurses and other health professionals.
“There are some people who can train themselves.
There are others who are working on a case-by-case basis,” Abdul said.
But O’Reilly said that it was not the case that all orthopedias are being neglected, saying that there was “a huge gap” in the industry, particularly with the coronaviruses.
“If you are going to invest in an education system that is well-resourced and well-funded, then it is absolutely essential that you have the ability to train people to do this work, not just the most experienced,” he argued.
“The problem is that a lot people in orthopeds are working without a lot to their name.”
Olympic gold medallist Jillian Anderson is one of the athletes who has spoken out about the work she and her family do.
Anderson is one half of the popular fitness-focused Australian duo, Jillian and the Kids, who have a combined annual income of over $100,000.
In 2015, Anderson was crowned the 2016 Rio Olympic champion after competing in eight events, including swimming, gymnastics, track and field, and archery.
She won gold in the 100m freestyle final and the 200m individual medley final, and is the only woman to win the Olympic Games in each of those disciplines.
Olympian and Paralympic gold medalist Jessica Ennis, who is a member of the Australian Olympic Committee, was also a key figure in the Olympic movement and was instrumental in making Australia an attractive place for overseas athletes.
In 2016, Ennis was part of the squad that won the men’s team event at the Rio Olympics, and was named as a 2016 Olympian in the team event.
She told the Sydney Morning Herald last year that she felt “a lot of anxiety” when her father, a world-class golfer, passed away.”[I was] incredibly lucky and privileged to be part of an amazing sport in Australia,” she said.
“The team that won medals, the people that I saw as friends and family, it’s really a special group.”
My parents and I have always had the same dream, to be the best golfer and the best gymnast that we can be.
