What is PRS Global Open’s Face the Case? • A video by one of the Resident Ambassadors presents a case and problem list from a popular PRS Global Open case report. Then they will pitch multiple-choice solutions to the audience and ask them to vote on how they would Face the Case. • The plastic surgery community will vote on the best option via polls/posts on PRSGlobalOpen.com, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. • After the voting period, a second video of a globally-recognized Plastic Surgeon will publish describing how he/she would Face the Case and how the authors of a related PRS Global Open Case Report faced the problem.
