Conflict of Interest Training (Required)

The ASPS Continuing Education (CE) Committee has created a training module titled How to Avoid a Conflict of Interest. This short learning program will provide essential information that all presenters should use to ensure that their presentation is compliant with ACCME rules.

ASPS is asking all presenters and moderators to complete this very important program prior to Plastic Surgery The Meeting.

To access the module, please click here, and use your ASPS credentials to login into the EdNet platform. Click Launch when you are ready to begin. If you do not recall your credentials, click on Forgot Password and enter your email address; please do not create a new account unless an ASPS team member instructs you to do so.

Please contact Chandra Dunbar if you have any questions.

On-Demand Resources

Other Faculty Reminders

No Remote Access for Live Presentations

ASPS will not support Zoom or any other webinar software for virtual presenting at Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2024. Any faculty member who cannot be physically present in the room during their live sessions will need to pre-record their presentation and will not be able to participate in the live Q&A. On-Demand sessions are all pre-recorded and are therefore not affected by this.

No Macintosh computers or presentations

Macintosh computer and/or Keynote presentations will not be available in educational programming rooms. All presentations created on a Macintosh computer will need to be converted to PC PowerPoint before the session starts. Staff at the Speaker Concierge room will be able to assist with the conversion.

Quick Hits Concept and a Digital Learning Experience

On-Demand presentations will be spotlighted with a Quick Hits feature and a digital learning experience at this year's PSTM24. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Learning from Teaching Activity Credit

Physicians may claim an amount of AMA Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA) Category 1 Credit™ associated with preparing and presenting an original presentation at a live AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ activity. While the credit reflects the learning involved in the preparation, the amount of credit is based on presentation time. Physician presenters may now claim up to 4 credits per each 1 hour (1 credit per 15 minutes) of presentation time at eligible live activities.
