Dear Colleagues,

As we all battle to Covid pandemic, the wish for educational exchange and social interaction have become stronger. Most of us have had reduced patient care and restricted social and family contacts for a long time.

We had hoped, that our announcement now would have been an invitation to a live congress in Rotterdam. The reality is unfortunately different.

On the other hand, we have put a tremendous effort in creating the best online program we can do at the moment. The time schedule has been carefully selected to provide for the participants the best educational opportunity without overloading information, as we all already have been involved in many video sessions.

The program includes many sessions of a normal live program, for example the 10 best papers session from the Journal of Hand Surgery European volume, instructional courses and the EWAS session.

As the theme of the meeting is complications in hand surgery, we will add an exciting session entitled "disasters from the masters".

In addition, we will present live surgery sessions on many hand surgery topics in a superb Cadlab and will debate on difficult to solve problems.

A newly created concept will challenge different FESSH countries to produce presentations in a so-called "Nations Competition".

In closing, we are looking forward to welcoming you all to the FESSH Online week coming June. It will be a fantastic program that will only get better with your input as participants.

Warm greetings,


J. Henk Coert & Brigitte van der Heijden
Presidents FESSH-ON(line)-Week 2021

An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR VIDEO PRESENTATION?

Using MS PowerPoint Using a video conferencing tool

We recommend to use a three step method with MS PowerPoint:

  1. Create a Voice Over Power point file
  2. Convert it to MP4 with MS PowerPoint - use the lowest resolution
  3. Finally compress your MP4 video file to reduce the file size with up to 80% without losing quality

You can use any meeting software as long as you get a good quality recording and your final file is in the MP4 format.

Please compress your MP4 video file to reduce the file size with up to 80% without losing quality.

Once your video is created please upload it on our server. As an author you have been received a personal email with a special upload link uniquely associated with your presentation. If you have not received this message please ask for resending. Please check your spam folder first as our message might have landed there.

GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING YOUR VIDEO

  • File size: 80MB max - always compress your MP4 file, see above!
  • Video file format: mp4
  • Bitrate: max 1 mbps - To check the bit rate, right click on the file name, click on properties, go to the details tab, and look for total bitrate.

TIPS FOR RECORDING:

  1. Use as quiet an area as possible
  2. Avoid areas that have echo
    • Rooms should be fairly small
    • Sound dampening with carpeting, curtains, furniture
  3. Good headset with microphone close to mouth BUT away from direct line of mouth to reduce "pops".  Avoid using default built-in microphone on computer.
  4. Do a test recording of a couple of minutes and review the sound and picture quality, MP4 format, and bit rate before recording the entire presentation. Make adjustments if needed.
