September 2001 AAOS Report
OKO scheduled to launch on October 15
On October 15, AAOS will launch Orthopaedic Knowledge Online (OKO), the new AAOS web site that gives members instant access to video demonstrations and text-based information regarding diagnosis, treatment and management of musculoskeletal disorders. A benefit of AAOS membership, OKO is available for members' use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. OKO gives users the ability to tap into the AAOS's vast resources to browse and review orthopaedic materials and surgical approaches. "The site is sharp," said William Grana, MD, co-editor-in-chief. "Anyone who spends much time on the net will be impressed with what they're able to do here. I think orthopaedics leads the way in terms of CME, and this is simply another example of orthopaedics taking the lead in going to an online format in a major way." The web site will continue to grow and evolve. "In today's busy orthopaedic practices, we're all looking for more efficient ways to stay up-to-date," said Robert H. Fitzgerald Jr, MD, co-editor-in-chief. "Using this site, orthopaedic surgeons can rapidly focus their review and search process by accessing almost any information they need through just one convenient source." OKO will be found at www.aaos.org/oko on Oct. 15.
