Lessons Learned from Engagement in PI CME Activities

March 2, 2010 at 11:47 pm Leave a comment

Shelly Rodrigues, CAE, Deputy Executive Vice President at the California Academy of Family Physicians and Executive Director of the CAFP Foundation has engaged in a number of successful PI CME activities. Recently I did a podcast with Shelly asking her to share a few lessons learned from her experience. There are several including the following:

  • Life gets in the way. Things happen in the real world that can impact a PI CME activity. CME providers have to be ready to adapt to these exigencies.
  • People involved in PI become great teachers.
  • PI CME activities take a lot of time and effort.
  • Successful PI initiatives take a commitment from physicians and others in the practice.
  • PI is a team activity and you need the support of the team to be effective.
  • Being in a practice brings additional benefits to the CME provider about how to plan future CME activities.

You may want to listen to the podcast to get some real world insights that come from engaging in PI CME efforts.
