CME Value: A Healthcare Providers Perspective
Track: Lightning Round
Does CME work? Understanding the perceptions of the healthcare providers who complete continuing education is important for the development of successful programs that will impact their practice, patients and the community. Utilizing various resources, we have developed a dedicated research team to explore the gaps and needs of healthcare providers and patients.
The research conducted by Global Education Group has implications for the advancement of both CME/CE as well as healthcare. By analyzing feedback obtained by the healthcare professionals who complete CME/CE we are better able to identify their educational needs and preferred learning formats as well as develop future educational initiatives which align with adult learning principles. The specific examples provided regarding CME/CE’s impact on patient care and healthcare costs help us better understand how HCPs are incorporating the information into their practice settings.
