Frequently Asked Questions

If I am an affiliated Providence provider, how can I actively participate?

Please email info@seattlesciencefoundation.org to request our Go-To Meeting log-in information, include your Providence site location. 

I am participating from an off-site affiliated Providence provider location, what can I expect? 

The outline of the case discussions will be as follows: provider presents, neuroradiologist discusses, then questions are asked to the group. 

The technical details will be as follows: 

  • Imaging will be displayed on your screen as the presenter details the case clinical history.
  • You will receive audio from the Seattle Science Foundation Conference Room, if there is an additional off-site presenter, you will also receive their audio.
  • The neuroradiologist then will discuss the images on screen.
    • All off-site participants will still be viewing the images, as the neuroradiologist is discussing, and hearing the neuroradiologist’s findings.
  • We will occasionally cut to a camera in the room, however, to optimize your education, most of the screen time will consist of imaging. 

How will I be able to ask questions or make comments?

The Go-To Meeting platform contains a chatroom in which you may submit questions and or comments about cases presented. The Case Discussion moderator will have real-time access to all chatroom activity and will repeat questions/comments and answer as received.  

*To keep the audio consistent amongst all online participants, we cannot unmute your microphone to submit a questions verbally.

What is the best way to view the Imaging and Case Discussion.  

Due to the high volume of data being transmitted to all participants, the Case Discussion is best viewed from a desktop of laptop with a land based internet connection (aka - plugged into the wall). Wifi is not the optimal way to participate in this meeting.
