Video material has become a core component of educational strategies. Its short format and multimedia nature are in sync with today’s learners’ profiles. It can feature experts opinions, commented slides, patient testimonials or web documentary. Video filming requires preparation before the filming to make sure all stakeholders are involved and authorisations obtained, during the filming so that essentials messages are captured and after the filming in post-production phase.
Symposia during medical congresses are an opportunity to present data and clinical messages to a targeted audience. They involve the selection of faculty, preparation of presenters’slides, possibly interactive features such as audience response systems. Multiple tactics contribute to the success of live events that can be otherwise expensive. Logistical preparations are essential to this success and CME accreditation can also provide an added value.
