The first Saint Louis University School of Medicine Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery live CME webinar is scheduled to take place 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29, via WIMBA Classroom. Use the following link to log into the plastic and reconstructive surgery webinar.
Saint Louis University Continuing Medical Education Program (SLU CME) is awarding 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM to those that view the full activity and complete the evaluation and apply for credit forms. These forms will be automatically downloaded at the end of the lecture.
Bruce Kraemer, M.D., the chief of the division of Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery, is the driving force behind this educational format and will present "Assessment of Chronic Wounds and Pressure Ulcers."
This live interactive session will start with a 30-40 minute lecture and slide presentation, followed by a 15-20 minute question and answer session. Invitations have been sent out to area hospitals, physicians in private practice and to SLU faculty, residents, and fellows.
With the WIMBA tool, participants can raise their hand, type in questions or ask questions over the program voice protocol. In the near future we hope this type of activity will become an interactive tool that our learners will be able to upload interesting cases for discussion with our expert faculty and with other participants to share best practices for better patient outcomes.
If participants have not used the WIMBA Classroom tool before, it is suggested that the run the set-up wizard prior to the start of the activity to ensure their computer has the required equipment. The wizard will automatically start upon logging in. Questions can be entered into the chat box on the bottom left corner of the classroom portal. WIMBA Classroom support can be also found on the IT we bsite.
The SLU Continuing Medical Education program would like to thank Dr. Bruce Kraemer, M.D., Krista Wozniak (CME student worker), Ted Stahl and Kyle Collins (SLU IT), and Hosea Bartlett (Saint Louis Hospital Physician Relationship Manager) for their support in pulling this educational format together for the future development of the SLU CME program in fulfillment of our mission, to educate our learners for better patient outcomes.
