Outcomes in CME/CPD
Message from Don Moore - Guest Editor:
I want to invite you to participate in a special collection on Outcomes in Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Continuing Education in the Health Professions (CEHP), and Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE).
You can participate by submitting a manuscript that describes, from your own experience, an attempt to accomplish an outcome in health professions education (CME, CPD, CEHP, IPCE).
There are, of course, many ways to define outcomes. In the context of health professions education, an outcome is the desired result of a learning experience. With that in mind, we propose four categories of outcomes for your consideration:
- Improved health of a community
- Improved health of a group of patients with a specific condition
- Improved performance of clinicians in any aspect of managing a group of patients with a specific condition
- Development of clinician competence
We are particularly interested in one or more of the following:
- the measures that were used
- how the measures were assessed
- the assessment method
- the research design
- the learning opportunities that could be experienced
- the instructional design strategies that created the learning experiences
- any non-educational activities that supported learning or the use of what was learned
Descriptions of successful and unsuccessful efforts are encouraged.
The goal of the special outcomes collection is to shine a light on the results of outcome studies to help practitioners in CME, CPD, CEHP, and IPCE design learning activities that lead to improved clinical performance and enhanced patient health.
We look forward to your contribution.
