The Multimedia Education Center features three award-winning DVD programs selected by the Electronic Media Education Committee, chaired by Evan L. Flatow, MD. The winning programs are chosen for their high production values, technical quality, educational merit, and clinical relevance.
This year’s outstanding programs are: 21-Point Arthroscopic Examination of the Ankle by Mark J. Albritton, MD, and Richard D. Ferkel, MD, (DVD-video shown at Station 1); Management of Trigger Finger from Injection to Surgery by Randy Bindra, MD (DVD-video shown at Station 2); and Treatment of Posterior SLAP and Labral Tears by Keith D. Nord, MD, and Todd Gothelf, MD (DVD-video shown at Station 3).
“Video remains one of orthopaedic education’s most helpful and widely used instructional tools,” according to Dr. Flatow. “The award-winning video programs and selections that are showcased each year in Multimedia Education Center illustrate our members’ commitment to lifelong learning. We are deeply indebted to our program authors for their voluntary contributions, without which the Multimedia Education Center would not be possible.”
To help members who are considering producing an educational video program, the Electronic Media Education Committee offers these technical tips:
• Shoot your video from the orthopaedic surgeon’s point of view.
• Use pre-and post-operative images to illustrate and describe indications and outcomes.
• Use still images judiciously. Remember video is a medium of motion.
• Use wide shots to establish orientation and context and close-ups to show operative details.
• Show that your surgical site has been signed.
• Use a balanced approach to inside, outside, and picture-in-picture shots when showing arthroscopic techniques.
• Use music and special effects sparingly.
• Edit the final program to omit repetitive, nonessential surgical actions such as routine dissection, clamping, and suturing.
• Ensure that the audio is clear and without unnecessary noise. Consider having the program narrated professionally.
In reviewing the videos, the Electronic Media Education Committee considers the following issues related to content:
• Does the program provide all the necessary clinical elements, such as indications, important context as well as detail, and outcomes?
• Is the educational content clearly focused? Are the educational goals clearly articulated and addressed in the program?
• Is the program unbiased with regard to particular products?
• Have you provided content describing care related to ethnic medical differences among patients?
• Do camera angles and lighting allow clear visualization?
• Is the audio clear and without excessive noise, and is the narration clear and easily understood?
• Is the video tightly edited to include educationally relevant content and to exclude repetitive steps, such as suturing or clamping?
Additional tips can be found on the application form for submitting programs for presentation at the 2007 Annual Meeting; the form is available online at www.aaos.org under Annual Meeting, 2007 applications. All AAOS fellows are urged to submit their instructional videos for consideration.
