Call for participants: Needs assessment survey


The COVID-19 pandemic is pushing us to adapt to new challenges and develop our educational events accordingly. As a result, the AO Alliance is launching a survey to better understand the needs for our upcoming educational events. What new topics could be taught? What obstacles to attending our events have you encountered?
The AO Alliance’s mission is to alleviate the burden of injury in in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Trauma claims over 5 million lives annually and ranks third among causes of death for people under the age of 40 worldwide. Education is one of the AO Alliance’s key strategies to support and empower local healthcare professionals in managing fracture care, using locally available resources.

We thus invite our entire network of healthcare professionals and course participants to take part in a survey to evaluate the needs for educational events in the countries we cover.
This survey is intended for four target groups:

  • Surgeons
  • Residents
  • Operating room personnel
  • Paramedics

We would greatly apreciate your time in completing this survey (it takes about 5 – 10 minutes). We are hoping to receive responses from all the countries we are active in and would be very grateful if you could forward this survey to relevant persons you know who belong to one of the four mentioned groups. The more responses we receive, the better we can understand your educational needs and respond to them.
If the device on which you are reading the survey does not allow you to fill it in or if you encounter a technical problem, kindly contact [email protected].
