Each year the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education recognizes outstanding work in our field. This year the award for a “Great Idea” selected by the Medical School Member Section went to the Jefferson Medical College. The program was titled “Accelerating Best Care in Pennsylvania”. Under the direction of Jeanne Cole, MS, Director of CME at the Jefferson Medial College and Alexis Skoufalos, EdD, Assistant Dean for Continuing Professional Education in the Jefferson School of Population Health and in collaboration with Baylor this project was effective in changing some significant practices in two Pennsylvania Community Hospitals.
I recorded a conversation with Jeanne and Alexis about the project. For those of you interested in finding ways to effectively link CME and improvement efforts you’ll want to hear about this project. Go to my podcast.

You can also find more information about the project by linking to a presentation made at the 2009 meeting of the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education. Click here.

There are several articles in the July 2008 issue of the American Journal of Medical Quality regarding the project.
