Are you presenting at ASTRO's Annual Meeting this year? Presenters can find more information below regarding presentation requirements, locate all other necessary tools to help you build your presentation and review important deadlines.
In an effort to improve practice around using respectful language regarding patients and colleagues ASTRO Leadership has developed Culture of Respect Guidelines that we ask all presenters to review and adhere to during their presentations at the Annual Meeting and all ASTRO meetings. The language addresses the importance of using professional introductions, correct pronunciations of names and correct use of pronouns, as well as respectful language around patients. The guidelines provide examples of appropriate and inappropriate language that you will find helpful as you prepare your presentation.
We are pleased to offer all faculty and presenters access to the newly developed Faculty Best Practices Training in the ASTRO Academy. The purpose of the trainings is to help ASTRO speakers organize their presentations, create effective visual design of content and slides and prepare their presentation delivery following recommended best practices and ASTRO guidelines.
