“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Certainly, for surgeons a video can often educate better than other formats. ASBrS is again inviting you to submit a video showing your colleagues your tricks of the trade. Your video can be used to demonstrate how you perform a novel procedure, provide tips or tricks you use on a standard procedure, or show an approach you take to a clinical problem.
Videos will be peer-reviewed by the Society's Online Video Library Committee, who will select the best submissions for presentation based on procedure, quality of technique and video, and interest to the Society membership. During the presentation session, the video will be played muted and the presenter will be expected to narrate. The authors of videos selected for presentation must be available to present their videos at the 24th Annual Meeting: April 26–30, 2023, at the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, Boston, MA.

CME Clinical Content Validation
The American Society of Breast Surgeons is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. ASBrS is responsible for ensuring that our education is fair and balanced and that any clinical content presented supports safe, effective patient care. Before you submit your video, please keep in mind ACCME’s Policy on Content Validation:
- All recommendations for patient care in CME must be based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning, while giving a fair and balanced view of diagnostic and therapeutic options.
- All scientific research referred to, reported, or used in CME in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation.
- Although CME is an appropriate place to discuss, debate, and explore new and evolving topics, these areas need to be clearly identified as such within the program and individual presentations. It is our responsibility to facilitate engagement with these topics without advocating for, or promoting, practices that are not, or not yet, adequately based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning.
- We cannot be accredited if we advocate for unscientific approaches to diagnosis or therapy, or if our education promotes recommendations, treatment, or manners of practicing healthcare that are determined to have risks or dangers that outweigh the benefits or are known to be ineffective in the treatment of patients.
