JECME Special Collection: Digitization of Continuing Education in the Health Professions

We invite you to contribute to the JECME 2021 Special Collection on “Digitization of Continuing Education in the Health Professions”, including Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE).

You can contribute by submitting a full article or short communication describing your experience with or perspectives on the role of digitization in continuing education. Digitization already affects educators, funders, regulators, policy makers and others involved in the continuing education of healthcare professionals, and it will profoundly change how continuing education is planned and delivered in the future. Thus, describing the role of digitization in transforming education and its impact on continuing education requires an interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder approach.

This Special Collection will focus on the following subthemes:

  1. Current and future role of digitization in education and the practice of medicine, including aspects related to efficacy, outcomes, technical features, ethics, law, transparency, data protection, credibility of sources of information, etc.
  2. How can digitization support and facilitate planning and delivery of effective education, in particular
    with regard to needs assessment, content validity, quality of educational design, outcomes measurement
    or simulation?
  3. Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on production and use of continuing education:
    - How has education changed during the COVID-19 pandemic?
    - What has happened to live events and how will they evolve?
    - How is the educational portfolio going to change in the post-COVID-19 era?
  4. How to improve the “digital competence” of healthcare professionals?

We hope that authors from a wide range of stakeholders in continuing education will share their experiences and views on the potential impact of digitization in order to better inform the medical education community. We look forward to receiving your contribution
