Dear Delegates,

As you might remember FESSH has offered its support to the ICHOM Project last year. https://www.ichom.org/

The ICHOM Hand and Wrist Conditions Standards have been developed in the last months and now it is in the final phase gathering the feed-back of patients and professionals.

Together with the HWR Group we would like to send the link of the Professional Open Review to all FESSH surgeons. FESSH considers it as a very important project, we think it is important to involve as many surgeons as possible.

Please spread this link among your national society members and ask them to fill it out.

Thank you very much for your contribution.

On behalf of Maurizio Calcagni, Secreatry of FESSH
