This morning, I attended a great presentation focused around adult learning principles that are applicable in the world of medical education. The presentation was titled, "Building a High Performance Workplace in Healthcare."
When is the last time you learned something that really changed your behavior at work? Have you stopped to think about that? What barriers hinder you from improving your workflow efficiencies?
Adult learning research can help us improve the way we deliver continuing education to physicians and other healthcare professionals. There is a growing body of literature that can help us enhance the medical education industry. CME is evolving away from traditional didactic lectures and we are seeing more CME activities that are interactive, practical, and actionable.
As educators, what are we doing to ensure that CME is leading to practice-based changes?
