Overcoming Barriers to Change In CME: What Has the Pandemic Taught Us About Our Big Assumptions?Thursday, January 27, 2022, 3:00 - 4:00 PM CT
Despite recurring calls for reform and extensive literature on best practices, the field of CME/CPD has been slow to change. Lack of change despite stated intentions suggests this is what Heifetz calls an “adaptive challenge,” one requiring a change not in skillset, but in mindset.
Together we will address this adaptive challenge through the “Immunity to Change” (ITC) framework by education psychologists Kegan and Lahey. This process yields a map of the complex network of competing commitments and underlying assumptions that form the immunity to change. We will explore one possible map of the collective “immune system” of CME practitioners that generates powerful insights into our barriers to change: seemingly unresolvable tensions between learner autonomy and learning needs, feasibility and impact, innovation and acceptance, and more—all based in paralyzing “big assumptions.”
Map in hand, change in mindset then comes from implementing tests of these assumptions’ validity. We will use the ITC framework to integrate our individual experiences as CME leaders during the COVID-19 pandemic—an unanticipated but highly impactful test—into system-wide insights for positive change.
