The Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions (ACEhp) is proud to present the first major milestone in a multi-year national effort:
This is an important time not just for leaders in continuing medical education, but also for those educating healthcare professionals. As healthcare systems rethink how best to accelerate improvements in patient safety, care effectiveness, and value, a tremendous opportunity exists to systematically link interprofessional educational programming into health systems’ emerging learning models. By bridging current gaps between continuing education and QI, Alliance members’ educational activities will more effectively help clinicians and patients who will increasingly find themselves in value-driven care-delivery models.
The ACEhp is excited to share the QIE Roadmap and solicit more input going forward. The Roadmap provides an existing QI tool to start designing, delivering, and reporting on QIE in a consistent manner to help ACEhp providers and grantors obtain a clear understanding of the integration of education into QI, as well as success drivers. This tool will evolve throughout the QIE initiative, providing a starting point for educators and QI teams to work together.
This first phase of the QIE Initiative was funded by unrestricted independent grants from AbbVie, Genentech, Novo Nordisk Inc. and by medical sponsorship from Medscape, Astellas, and Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
