SICOT - Future Changes
The online activities of SICOT are in continuous evolvement; and the electronic Newsletters now reach over 17,000 subscribers. A new Editorial Board has been formed for the Newsletter with four active young surgeons joining the team. With plans to rejuvenate the content and look of the Newsletters, we want you to share in the poll, which will be launched online and on Facebook, and tell us what you think and want to see in our Newsletter. SIGNEL (our global network of electronic learning), is posting the latest lectures and symposia from our Prague meeting. It will also include some of the lectures from the Hip Educational Day, which was a successful targeted educational event for trainees.
Our SICOT group on Facebook has now 127 members and this number is rising rapidly. We are using this to communicate with each other, socialise, share research ideas, and ask each other for opinions on difficult and interesting cases. You can also post your latest publications, thus connecting with other members who share the same interest and research planning, and starting the collaboration.
We hope you can join us on our journey into the future, with rapid changes and developments, so we can continue to achieve our aim of advancing Orthopaedics and Traumatology on an international level, and reach our final goal of improving patient care.
