Description

Previous literature demonstrated limited effectiveness of Continuing Medical Education (CME) to improve patient care. Traditional live courses have provided an opportunity for dissemination of new knowledge, but the link between this and improved patient care outcomes has been difficult to demonstrate. Recent newer technologies in CME provide new ways to consider how physicians and other health care providers are educated, and more importantly, how this education can impact patient outcomes.

The presenter will provide a brief background into adult learning theories, and will engage the audience in how educators can optimize such theory in CME programming. The use of patients and storytelling, as demonstrated in previous MedX conferences, will be highlighted. Participants will contribute to the discussion in an exploration of technology best practices, and how to close the gap between what HCPs know and what they do with their patients.

Opportunity for small group discussions, with a focus on “tweeting the meeting”, will explore technology “do’s and don’ts” with respect to continuing education for healthcare providers. Each participant table will complete a worksheet with explicit objectives. This will lead into a larger group report out and discussion of how to utilize emerging technology in CME and other continuing education venues. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will each receive “take home tools” for lifelong learning delivered through means of technology.
