    About: Continuing professional development is critical to sustained life-long-learning and the delivery of effective and high quality care based on the best available evidence. Traditional methods of continuing professional development have not often resulted in lasting practice change. This has resulted in a renewed call for outcomes-focused continuing professional education.

    This session is based on the proceedings from the SACME CPD symposium delivered at the 2019 AMEE annual meeting in Vienna, Austria that aimed to highlight key principles and theories that inform scholarly, effective CME/CPD contemporary programs. With an overall focus on outcomes in CPD, we will engage in a facilitated rapid-fire short panel discussion with examples from international experts in the field.

    This session will include the role of theory in driving practice change, as well as specific examples in important practical areas, such as:

    • Partnering with Patients for Better Outcomes
    • Developing Metacognitive Skills
    • Communicating for Better Outcomes
    • Assessing Beyond Knowledge
    • Collaborating, Coaching and COP
    • Building Capacity for System Change

    Participants will have the opportunity to discuss examples from their practice and to think about how they might start a process of incorporating these principles into their CME/CPD programming.

    MOOCs - A Disruptive Innovation in CME
    January 23, 2020, 1:00 - 2:00 PM CT

    Presenter: Alvaro Margolis, MD, MSc, FIAHSI
    President, Global Alliance for Medical Education, GAME
    President & CEO, EviMed 

    Facilitator: Mila Kostic, CHCP, FACEHP

    About: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are now common across disciplines, including Medicine. In this Webinar, it will be contended - and participants will be able to argue for or against - that massive online courses are going to disrupt the CME landscape and become an integral component of how continuing medical education is delivered globally in the next five years.

    Dr. Margolis will start his introductory presentation with a precise definition of the terms "MOOC" and "disruptive innovation”, This will be followed by an analysis of the potential for disruption of MOOCs for healthcare professionals and teams, including practical current examples and the rational for the trends and future developments.  Finally, we will engage in a dialogue with the audience about how likely this forecast is and how these concepts apply to their own settings.
