Help Us Rename SHUEHORN!

Volunteer Note

Edward Akelman, MD
In the next 12-15 months, ASSH will be introducing a new online learning platform that will house all of the Hand Society's clinical content (e.g., articles, images, videos, newsletters, books and more).  It will allow you to search an incredible amount of resources for exactly what you need, and even save important items to your own online collection.  We are very excited to be able to offer this incredible resource to our members, and to increase the value that we provide to our membership. 
Up until now, this project has been known as SHUEHORN, or Surgery of the Hand and Upper Extremity/Hand Online Resource Network, and we need your help to come up with a better name for this incredible tool.  We would like to invite our membership to take an active role in building this resource by helping us come up with a new name for the platform.  We are looking for suggestions that capture the spirit and mission of hand and upper-extremity education with a catchy, easy-to-remember moniker.
To that end, we are announcing a contest to rename SHUEHORN.  Please submit your suggestions.  You may share as many ideas as you wish.  The submission deadline is July 12, and the author of the winning idea will receive bragging rights, and satisfaction in the knowledge that he or she has made their stamp on the history of hand and upper extremity education.   
We would like to be able to give this platform a fresh name befitting of its breadth and value.  Thank you in advance for your creativity.

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.
