Skills Training Presentation Guidelines

  1. Final PowerPoint slides and/or presentation materials submission deadline is March 4, 2024, to allow time for Conflict of Interest Review and inclusion in our online course materials for participants.
  2. Please follow the Hands-on Skills Training Presentation Guidelines document as you create your presentation.
  3. Course Directors are responsible for providing guidance to Faculty on the direction of their content, to ensure that it supports the learning objectives and doesn't overlap other presentation content.
  4. If your presentation for your Hands-on Skills Training has been pre-recorded, and you are acting as a proctor, you may report directly to the Hands-on Skills Training course area.
  5. If you are conducting a presentation onsite, we ask that you go to the Speaker Ready Room in the Henry B. González Convention Center to review your presentation, at least 24 hours prior to your presentation start time. You may make minor, non-material edits at this time. This would include correcting typos or errors or changing slide order. No changes can be made following this point.
  6. No changes can be made in the course room. All presentations will be pushed from the Speaker Ready Room.
  7. Please be advised that you are expected to be in attendance for the entire training; no early departures are acceptable unless there are exceptional circumstances with prior AUA approval.

Conflict of Interest Review

  • The AUA Is accredited by the ACCME and as accredited educational activities, all instructional courses are subject to review by the AUA Conflict of Interest (COI) Work Group. The group’s mission is to assist the Office of Education in the review of content to ensure the highest quality continuing medical education that is scientifically valid and free of bias or promotion. Your presentation may be selected for peer review, you will be notified by the AUA Office of Education if any changes are required.
  • Prior to updating your disclosures, you must complete the new Conflict of Interest Disclosures Module on AUAUniversity. This COI Disclosures Module discusses COI disclosures, including how to use AUA's disclosure process, important definitions of terms and requirements related to COI disclosure, and AUA's requirements for speakers and planners of accredited educational activities.
