Alliance for CME Meeting- Got a little less busy for me

If you are a CME Professional or are related to the CME Enterprise at all you want be at the meeting of the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education in San Francisco later this month. There is something for everybody at the meeting.

My meeting is actually a little less hectic than I had hoped it would be. Both sessions I was to participate in as a presenter have been canceled. In one session I had hoped to present results of a pilot study where a group of CME professionals agreed to learn about A3 Problem Solving and use the approach to address an improvement opportunity in their CME operation. Regardless of the encouragement and prodding from the pilot study leaders the project flopped. Several participants in the pilot said they used the approach but we received no evidence that it happened. So I canceled the session. No data. No session.

The second session I was involved in that was canned was to report on establishing a “Community of Practice” focused on PI CME. As hard as the leaders tried to get this one going it didn’t happen.

Both of these failed efforts required a time commitment and a willingness of the CME professional to participate in something a bit cutting edge for the CME Profession. Another commonalty between the two projects was me. I suppose I just might have been the kiss of death for both efforts. Not. Or was it?

See you in San Francisco.
