New CME Model Makes Learning a Dynamic Process

 AAMC Reporter: May 2012

By Barbara A. Gabriel, special to the Reporter

Here is an article worth a quick read. If you follow this Blog you know my opinion is that CME and “improvement” are inextricably bound together. Here is an initiative putting this into  practice.

 “Launched in January 2011, ae4Q is designed to help medical schools and teaching hospitals align their clinical quality improvement with their CME programs and activities. The goal is to go beyond simply issuing certificates of attendance to physicians and instead move toward helping them demonstrably improve their performance. The programs assess clinical data to identify practice gaps and then develop a CME activity with that information. When the educational intervention is complete, physician performance is measured again to determine if it has improved.”

Not all of us practice in settings were there is a Quality Improvement function. However, we can still use many quality tools to guide the development of our CME Program and the activities we offer healthcare professionals.

 This is not a fad. The future of CME has arrived with the integration of quality thinking and professional development.
