Multimedia Center presents programs; demonstrates educational multimedia

The Multimedia Education Center at the Annual meeting features the best of what orthopaedic video eduction has to offer. This year, DVD has taken hold as a medium that provides unsurpassed visual quality and convenient navigation. You will not want to miss this year's distinguished award-winning multimedia and video educational programs.

A choice of 34 stations

This year's Multimedia Education Center, which is located on Level 1 of The Moscone Center, West, gives visitors a choice of 34 viewing stations. Each station is equipped with either a videocassette or DVD player and several headphones for viewing videos or with a special mutlimedia computer display.

The 2004 award-winning multimedia and instructional videos will be featured at stations 1-4. Stations 4-34 include new videotape and multimedia programs that are grouped by anatomic area. This year, there is considerable focus on the shoulder, which is featured at 11 stations.

Award-winning multimedia

The Multimedia Education Center features one award-winning DVD program and three award-winning video programs. The winners were selected by the Electronic Media Education Committee, chaired by Jay D. Mabrey, MD. The committee chose award winners based on thir high production values, technical quality and educational merit. The committee also considered the essential matters of clinical relevance and outcomes.

The outstanding programs are: Femoral Impaction Grafting: The Exeter Technique by Carlton F. Savory, MD, FACS (DVD shown at Station 1); Minimally Invasive Periacetabular Osteotomy for the Treatment of the Dysplastic Hip: A Modified Ganz's Procedure by Masatoshi Naito, MD (video shown at Station 2); Arthroscopic Pancapsular Plication for Multidirectional Shoulder Instability by Stephen J. Snyder, MD, and Michael Hewitt, MD (video shown at Station 3) and Translaminar Facet Screws by Isador H. Lieberman, MD; Todd J. Stewart, MD, and Rick Sasso, MD (video shown at Station 4).

Tips for producing video and multimedia programs

"Video remains one of medical education's most effective and widely used teaching tools," according to Reid Stanton, manager in the AAOS Electronic Media department. "The award-winning multimedia programs that are showcased in this year's Multimedia Education Center offer clues to the future of computer-mediated learning environments in orthopaedics. We hope to see more work of this quality in the future. We are deeply indebted to our program authors for their voluntary contributions, without which the Multimedia Education Center would not be possible."

That's why the Electronic Media Education Committee wants AAOS members to know more about what elements are needed to produce such programming. It's one matter to possess the requisite knowledge and skills on a medical subject. It's quite another to understand the technical side of producing a video or multimedia program. Today's viewers have a sophisticated eye and will measure an educational video's production values against what they see every day on commercial television.

To help members who are considering producing an educational video or multimedia program for inclusion in next year's Multimedia Education Center, the Electronic Media Education Committee offers these technical tips:

Additional tips can be found on the application form for submitting programs for use at the 2005 Annual Meeting; the form is available online at under Annual Meeting, 2005 applications. All AAOS fellows are urged to submit their learning videos for consideration.

More than video

In the rapidly changing field of electronic media, video is not the only exciting path for obtaining fast, solid, reliable medical information. The Multimedia Education Center reflects this and includes computer-mediated learning environments. Four stations feature computer-mediated learning and hands-on demonstrations of their effectiveness. You'll find them interspersed among the video stations.

The Multimedia Education Center is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday; from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday, and from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 14. It is located in The Moscone Center, West, Level 1.
