One Question - Member Resources

Survey Summary

We are exploring how to streamlining our email communications. Please indicate what your preference would be for receiving ASSH emails:

I would prefer to receive everything in a single weekly email, so Correspondence News articles, Coding Corner articles, etc. would be highlighted weekly as articles are approved rather than sending a separate notice once a month. Articles would still be listed in the same areas of the website.​
​I would prefer to receive each newsletter separately, which is our current practice.
​I would prefer to receive most things in a single newsletter, but some newsletters I prefer to receive separately (please indicate which ones in Question 2).


If you prefer to receive some, but not all, newsletters as separate emails, please indicate which emails you'd like to receive separately:​

​Business of Hand Surgery
​Coding Corner
​Correspondence News
​Government Affairs Newsletter       
​Presidential Updates
© 2016 American Society for Surgery of the Hand

Search Tips

Tip 1: Start with the basics like “carpal tunnel.” You can always add more words later to narrow down results.

Tip 2: Choose words carefully and avoid terms that do not concern surgery.

Tip 3: Avoid capitalization and conjunctions like “the,” “and,” “or,” or “in.” Also, avoid using media types like “video,” “article,” and “picture.”

Tip 4: Your results can be refined by using either the tabs at the top (Video, Articles/WEB, Images, JHS, Products/Vendors), or the filters on the left (Filter by Source, Filter by Format, Filter by Purpose, etc.).

Tip 5: Punctuation can enhance your search as well. Use quotes (“search term”) to only include pages with the same words in the same order. But only use this if you are looking for an exact word or phrase, otherwise you may exclude helpful results. Add an asterisk (search term*) as a placeholder for any unknown or wildcard terms. For example, C*l Tunnel would give you results for Cubital Tunnel and Carpal Tunnel. Place a question mark (search term?) for single-character wildcard matching. For example, pa?ent would give you results for parent, patent, etc. You may also use the plus sign (search + word) between words for words you must have in the results.

Tip 6: We are always trying to improve our search, if you are having any trouble with search please refer to our survey here and we will use your comments to improve our search. You can also watch our search help video.
