Not your Grandma's CME:
What we've learned (and what we need to learn) about the continuing professional development of physicians
Dr. Dave Davis, MD, FCFP
For the most part, 'CME' is considered to be a passive transfer of knowledge, ineffective in changing physician performance or health care outcomes. In contrast, in the lives of physicians and in the operation of effective health systems, CME (or the more inclusive term, CPD) assumes a more holistic and interventionist role, a marriage of educational and clinical effort. This interactive seminar will focus on the results of qualitative and quantitative studies and systematic reviews of CME; the forces which have helped move CME to a more integrated and outcomes-oriented stance; and the educational work needing to be done yet, locally and nationally, to improve the care of patients.
Dr. Dave Davis is currently professor emeritus, Family and Community Medicine, the University of Toronto and visiting professor and senior consultant to the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medical and Health Sciences, Dubai. Most recently he has been the AAMC’s lead for continuing healthcare education and improvement.
