Hello Friends and Colleagues:
I hope everyone is getting to enjoy some cooler weather and some autumn color. We are a week out from our annual scientific meeting and I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on two very important differences with going virtual this year.
- Continuing Education
There will be two categories of continuing education credit this year. We are RACE approved for over 30 hours of interactive continuing education credits and the requirements for interactive versus non interactive credits varies from state to state. The interactive credits this year will only be available the week of the meeting. You must be logged into the meeting the week of Oct. 19-23 during the sessions to receive interactive CE credit. Everything is being recorded and will be available for viewing later but please check to be sure you are logged in everyday to receive interactive continuing education credit.
The abstracts will be available on demand and can be completed for non interactive continuing education credit at any time and will be available for 60 days after the meeting. We are also recording the interactive sessions and will be submitting for additional non interactive continuing education credits for viewing these sessions after the meeting. There will likely be a lag in RACE approval but the recorded sessions will be viewable for 60 days after the meeting before being archived.
The other major change to be aware of is the scheduling of lectures and meetings. It is much easier to make up time in a live meeting. With most of the lectures being prerecorded it is very difficult to land exactly at the 50 minute mark. The overall content and daily schedule is set, but there will be some small changes this week with regard to exact start times. The most up to date schedule will be posted on the ACVR website so please check back regularly if there is something you really want to see on the first pass. As mentioned, everything is being recorded and will be available for viewing after it is presented so we can always catch up.
If you haven’t registered yet now is the time to take advantage!
