Feedback and feature suggestions
I can't find the approaches anymore!!!
The approaches are now presented through hyperlinks in the treatment. Usually, you find them just after the introduction together with patient preparation. If you are just looking for a specific procedure, you can use the search in combination with the search filters.
Previous navigation allowed to skip steps to what you really needed to see: approaches or method of fixation depending on your level of training. The section ''all approaches'' was a useful study guide. This is no linger an option and makes it very unpleasant to use the website or app.
Dear Roxane, thank you very much for your feedback. I'd like to draw your attention to the search function. By using the filters you can select "content type - approach" and get a listing of all approaches in the AOSR. This can be further narrowed down by speciality or module if you want. (The user interface of mobile search was updated yesterday). For the procedure overview, we will still need to create an ordered sequence for the procedures to appear in, to completely replace the old list.

As a surgeon one should look more at an anatomy book and review important structures. The simplicity of your drawings is unparalleled. A picture speaks a thousand words. The author demonstrates the principle the concept well. Please also include a drawing of the position image views and like you already have the after care. May I suggest a QR code on the course program as a link to the download to the relevant Android / Apple App Store
Dear Chris, than you for your feedback. For the approaches (and patient positioning), you will find them either as hyperlinks within the procedures (where relevant) or you can find them easily through search combined with filters. The navigation is quite different from before but everything is there. Best regards, L
Very difficult to use than the previous version
This used to be such a great resource. Now the exposures are so hard to find and the website in general is difficult to use. It was a much much better resource before everything was changed! Bring back the old website please!

Many of us already know the treatment algorithm and don't want to have to go through this and want just a refresher on the approach. Would be much more user friendly if there was a specific approach section like before
The most valuable part of the previous app is completely gone. Approaches accessible from the different body parts, presented as a slide show taking you step by step through layers and dangers. Fast, logical, and very easy to compare different approaches in a quick and easy way. This was the most valuable part of the app to me. Please make that possible again.
Dear Egbert, than you for your feedback. For the approaches, you will find them either as hyperlinks within the procedures (where relevant) or through search. The new UI also allows you to configure custom overviews (For all approaches around the knee: Click the search button and use these filters - Orthopedic trauma - adult trauma - approach - distal femur - patella proximal tibia). Everything is there, but to declutter, overviews were replaced by an improved search function. Best regards, L
Agree with previous respondents. The structure is far less intuitive now. And why does for example one type of clavicle fracture show the approach and the other not?https://surgeryreference.aofoundation.org/orthopedic-trauma/adult-trauma/clavicle/diaphyseal-multifragmentary-fragmentary-spiral https://surgeryreference.aofoundation.org/orthopedic-trauma/adult-trauma/clavicle/diaphyseal-multifragmentary-intact-segmental/orif-compression-plate The update is certainly not an improvement.Kind regards, Carel Goslings (trustee)
Dear Carel, thank you for your feedback. Early next year, we will dive into our analytics and interview users. Issues that arise in that process, as well as those found here, will be addressed. Most of it will probably be small changes with a "large impact." We expected that the new search function could replace the shortcuts to approaches. In search, you can even configure overviews of approaches for a combination of modules, for example, the knee, if you set the right filters. However, from the comments on this page, it is clear that this did not work that smoothly, so we will most likely re-introduce shortcuts. Regarding the clavicle, the text and our intention on the compression plate page are not clear indeed, neither here or in the old version. We'll fix this with Simon when we get the opportunity.With kind regardsLars
