Thank you for taking advantage of this unique opportunity to submit Learning Objectives for the 2020 AAHKS Annual Meeting. By securing exhibit space, exhibiting companies are required by AAHKS to submit Learning Objectives by the deadline.
Purpose: Meaningful interaction
- Learning Objectives highlight unique patient and problem-oriented industry solutions and/or issues encountered in everyday practice.
- They drive meaningful, data and publication-based discussion between industry representatives and surgeons.
- The AAHKS Industry Relations Committee and AAHKS leadership believe that providing learning objectives meets the needs of our industry partners and increases learning value for attendees.
Visibility: Promote booth traffic
- Posted to your company profile on the AAHKS website
- Included in the Exhibit Hall/Learning Center Directory distributed to all attendees
- Displayed in the booth
Requirements: All exhibitors
- Each exhibiting company must submit at least one Learning Objective and no more than three.
- Booth representatives must familiarize themselves with the Learning Objectives in order to engage visitors in meaningful discussion.
Submit one to three Learning Objectives to be reviewed by the AAHKS Industry Relations Committee. Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sample Learning Objectives
Learning Objective 1
Through interactive media highlighting peer-reviewed publication, participants will learn how our knowledge of native knee kinematics has evolved dramatically over the last 20 years. Participants will gain a modern understanding of natural knee motion, which exhibits lateral pivot kinematics in early flexion activities such as walking and running.
Learning objective 2
Through discussion and review of published literature, we will highlight the association between aseptic loosening and cementing onto a damp & fatty bone bed. Participants will have the opportunity to demo instrumentation, which dries and cleans the bone leading to increased cement penetration, and bone-cement interface strength.
Learning Objective 3
Through review of clinical research study results, participants will be able to discuss the 97% patient satisfaction outcomes with sensor-assisted TKA compared to the 81% patient satisfaction with manual TKA found in peer-reviewed publications from 2004 to the present. By enhancing intra-operative ligament balance in primary TKA, our product may mitigate economic burden to the healthcare system due to early revision surgery.
Learning objective 4
Through booth interaction, participants will be able to compare the OR time savings for the surgeon and facility with our system as compared to intra-operatively molded spacer designs. Economic and efficiency data will be provided to support this comparison.
The deadline for submissions is June 21, 2020.
