What s happening in cme l.jpg

What’s Happening in CME?

  • Calls for reform in CME

  • Inadequacy of traditional didactic CME to improve practice

  • CME’s goal: improve patient care

    • A broader definition of education,

      from: individual learning to: quality improvement

  • Evolution from Continuing Education to CPD- Continuous Professional Development


Cme providers mission shrink the quality gap l.jpg

CME Providers’ Mission: Shrink the Quality Gap

  • Mission: Deliver programs that provide physicians with implementable knowledge and skills…

  • so that measurable changes in competence (“knowledge-in-action”), performance, or patient outcomes can be demonstrated.


Accme s updated accreditation criteria 2006 cme as a bridge to quality l.jpg

ACCME’s Updated Accreditation Criteria, 2006“CME as a Bridge to Quality”

Accredited providers shall:

  • Focus on improving one or more of physician competence, physician performance, and/or the physician’s patient outcomes.

  • Provide CME activities based on practice-based and learner-based needs.

  • Evaluate success at meeting their change mission.

  • Engage with their environment to enhance the role of their program and of CME in promoting quality and safety.

ACCME Expectations

CME providers are expected to…

  • demonstrate progress towards implementation of these updated criteria by November 2008 …

  • and reach full compliance by 2012.


Accme ama approve new formats of cme l.jpg

ACCME & AMA Approve “New Formats” of CME

  • Accredited CME providers can now designate credit for

    • internet searching and learning, or point of care learning,

    • performance improvement activities,

    • test-item writing,

    • manuscript review.

Internet point of care poc cme l.jpg

Internet point of care (PoC) CME

The learner may –

  • Identify a question in practice;

  • Access new information from ‘trusted source(s);’

  • Integrate learning into patient care; and

  • Demonstrate what has been learned.

  • Earn 0.5 credits per search


Examples internet point of care poc cme l.jpg

Examples: Internet point of care (PoC) CME

  • Structured, self-directed, practice-based learning in support of specific patient care.

  • MD uses a computer-based clinical decision-making support tool at the point of care.

  • A reflective process in which physicians must document 1)their clinical question, 2)the sources consulted and 3)the application to practice.

  • Even when the recommendation is not appropriate for the patient, the physician still learns something in the process.


Tufts infopoems poc cme l.jpg

Tufts-InfoPOEMs POC CME

  • Tufts is accrediting searches Using infoPOEMs/InfoRetriever (Wiley)

  • Implementation requirements:

    • Contract (specs, funding)

    • Technical (POC site; credit tracking)

    • Testing

Evaluation to claim poc cme l.jpg

Evaluation to claim POC CME

  • The InfoRetriever search(es) I completed help me make decisions about the care of one or more patients. (strongly agree….strongly disagree)

  • Compared to other forms of acquiring CME, searching the literature with InfoRetriever and reflecting on the implications for practice is … (more/equally/less valuable)

  • Overall I would rate this CME activity as … (excellent…poor)

  • Please give one example of how a search did or did not affect your diagnosis, treatment, and/or patient outcomes. (free text)


Challenges l.jpg

Challenges

  • Was the search truly patient-related?

    • Option: require additional information from user to identify patient age/sex/diagnosis

  • Was the information source valid (a “trusted source”)?

    • Accreditor must approve the search engine’s tools and processes

  • Was the search completed and documented?

    • Does the accreditor collect complete information from the search engine or just assertions from the user?
