PI-CME: Lessons Learned and Strategies for Success
June 19, 2012 | 2:00-3:30 PM ET

Session Information:
Since AMA's conceptualization in 2005, many performance improvement (PI) CME activities have been implemented in the U.S., across various healthcare areas. Some of the successes of these activities include the opportunity to help physicians learn about quality improvement and link CME to performance improvement and patient outcomes. Nonetheless, many challenges have characterized the first generation of PI CME initiatives, including learner recruitment and retention, performance measure selection and data gathering, and models of financial support. In this webinar, presenters will not only share pearls and pitfalls associated with the first generation of PI-CME activities, but also strategies for succeeding in areas that have proven to be very difficult: recruitment and retention.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of this webinar, the learners will be able to:
  • Review characteristics of first generation PI CME initiatives.
  • Consider the strengths and challenges associated with different approaches to PI CME initiatives, including learner recruitment and retention, performance measure selection, educational interventions, technical platform and funding sources
  • Discuss motivations for engaging in education and quality improvement
  • Identify strategies that can be used to help motivate learners to engage in and complete PI-CME
  • Discuss the keys to further aligning continuing medical education and professional development with performance/quality improvement from the perspective of multiple stake holders.
Presenters:
  • Laura Lee Hall, PhD, Director, Center for Quality, American College of Physicians
  • Victoria Street, Director, Education, NCQA
  • Nancy Davis, PhD, Executive Director, NIQIE

Identifying Our Heirs: Developing the Next Gen of CE Leaders

Buy the archived Webinar!

Session Information:
When one thinks of “Leadership Development,” one generally thinks of programs that include Myers-Briggs assessments, advocacy and media training and issues management. Each of these elements of leadership development is vital but in our mind, the need for a CME Leader Institute is also clear. The need is driven by the multitude of changes in ACCME Standards, industry guidelines, evidence based medicine, and the need to develop faculty leaders who are able to address these topics from the lectern, in the classroom, or in the State Capitol hallways. Ethics, conflict of interest, gifts to physicians, point-of-care learning, performance and quality improvement education, team care, data collection and management, clinical research vs. public health emergencies are among the many topics that must be addressed by CME leaders in education. The need is also driven by the desire to “grow our own” – increasing the number of expert faculty members by providing professional development and both teaching and leadership experiences for the next generation.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of this webinar, the learners will be able to:
  • Determine the key steps required for your organization to develop and launch a CME faculty/leaders development program, including faculty and candidate recruitment.
  • Build the curriculum, using new and readily available resources, to advance candidates through faculty/leaders development program.
  • Identify potential funding sources for support of a CME faculty/leaders development program.

Presenters:
  • Shelly Rodrigues, MS, CAE, CCMEP, Deputy Executive Vice President, California Academy of Family Physicians
  • Carol Havens, MD, Director of Clinical Education, Kaiser Permanente Northern California

September 18, 2012 | 2:00-3:00 PM ET
Buy the archived Webinar!

Session Information:
Maintenance of Certification and Licensure updates critically important to the field of Continuing Education in the Health Professions (CEHP). For over 10 years now, CME providers have been modifying their CE offerings to help ensure that their CME activities support MOC® requirements of various specialty boards. As those MOC programs continue to evolve, it is important for CME providers to stay abreast to ensure that CME can continue to help physicians meet their MOC requirements. CEHP providers should also be aware of the Osteopathic Continuous Certification program and how it is being implemented so that CE programming can be aligned with OCC expectations, when appropriate.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
  • Discuss the current ABMS Maintenance of Certification® program including the role of CME providers in developing MOC activities
  • Discuss the status of Osteopathic Continuous Certification (OCC) and timelines for its implementation
  • Describe how FSMB’s Maintenance of Licensure Framework is evolving into implementation
Presenters:
  • George Mejicano, MD, MS, Senior Associate Dean for Education, School of Medicine, Oregon Health and Sciences University

Session Information:
Although the ACCME’s Standards for Commercial Support (aka Standards to Ensure the Independence of CME Activities) have been in place since 2004, CME providers still struggle with compliance and encounter questions and nuances in implementation. There are also many misconceptions within a provider’s structure and at the physician level on what is and is not allowed under the SCS. This session will be designed to shine a light on those areas and assist CME providers using the collective expertise of the group.

Objectives:
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
  • Identify challenges and possible areas of SCS noncompliance within their CME programs
  • Develop strategies to maintain compliance with the SCS
  • Discuss best practices for meeting the SCS
  • Streamline the process of implementation
