PSEN captures AAHS ASPN ASRM Annual Meetings

Last month, PSEN was a part of the annual meetings of our founding partners, the American Association for Hand Surgery, American Society for Peripheral Nerve and American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery on January 9-15, 2013 in Naples, Florida. In addition to providing demos of the website in the meeting exhibit hall, PSEN’s video news crew interviewed a number of attendees about the scientific highlights of the clinical programs, as seen in the video above. PSEN also recorded over 30 hours of panels and lecture presentations from the meetings. A selection is now available to view in the PSEN presentations area. More lecture recordings from the meetings will be posted over the next couple of weeks. Some of the presentation topics include:

  • Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  • Atypical Microsurgical Indications
  • Refinements in Toe Transfer
  • DRUJ Instability
  • Graded Motor Imagery (GMI)

Members of AAHS, ASPN or ASRM have free access to PSEN through their society membership. Your username is always your email address — if you don’t know or remember your password, just click the forgot my password link on the PSEN Login page or contact PSEN at onlineeducation@plasticsurgery.org.

PSEN at Plastic Surgery 2012

PSEN recorded more than 60 hours of panels and lectures at Plastic Surgery The Meeting in New Orleans at the end of October. We were also on site with a booth in the exhibit hall and video news crew. (You can see our news coverage in the video above).

Some of the clinical panels and lectures recorded are being turned into online CME courses, but most of them will be made available on PSEN for free to members. We’ll be rolling these out on the site in batches over the coming month. The first batch —  covering blepharoplasty and fat grafting in facial and breast procedures are online to watch now!

Plastic Surgery 2012 also marked the debut of the PSEN app for iPad/iPhone®. The app allows users to view videos and presentations, read case reports and complete CME courses in one user-friendly app. The app also features the International Clearinghouse of Meetings with an option to add an event to your device’s calendar. Attendees of Plastic Surgery The Meeting test drove the app at the PSEN booth in the exhibit hall. Each tester was also entered to win an iPad. Learn who won by watching the video below. The app is available for download in the app store. Search PSEN or click here.
