FALL 2022
  • 27 Sep 2022 11:42 PM | Anonymous

    Dear Readers,

    Welcome back from the long, hot summer. We apologize for the delay in publishing this Fall issue and will be back to our normal, quarterly schedule this Winter.

    Here are some highlights from this issue. We begin the issue with our International CME/CPD Update with a summary report of a unique workshop presented by Helena Filipe and Mila Kostic during the annual AMEE international conference this past September in Lyon. The workshop focused on the value of weaving professional networking, potentially enhanced by technology, and creating structured conversations at the workplace as pathways to develop professional development opportunities and creating value to the organization.

    A new column is introduced—Soph Box-- by columnist Sophie Soklaridis with an inaugural article on the future role of clinician educators. She asks “What will medicine and health professions education look like in the next 15 years? What skills will we need to keep on top of ever-evolving technology and engage our students?”

    In our Tips & Practice Innovations column, Terry Soleas and Helen Mawdsley have provided us with practical examples of how to create meaningful learning objectives applying the TRACT method discussed in SACME’s new resource—the CE Educator’s Toolkit. You will also want to read E-Learning & Technology. Vjeko Hlede provides an informative comparison of learning management systems (LMS) vs the more advanced learning “experience” systems (LXP) of the future.

    Lastly, Dr’s Craig Campbell and Joseph Szot, our new co-editors for our Publications and Scholarship column, have curated a thoughtful list of publications for your own continuing professional development.

    And for our readers residing in the U.S., we provide a comprehensive Legislative and Regulatory Update for the Fall session of Congress authored by staff at the Federation of State Medical Societies.

    I have saved the most important bit of news for last. I am delighted to announce that Helen Mawdsley, EdD has agreed to serve as Co-Editor in Chief. Please welcome Helen to her new role. Her research expertise and academic background bring an important set of skills to CE News.

    Wishing all our readers a happy fall and holiday season ahead.

    Best regards,


    G. Robert D'Antuono, MHA
