    Rethinking Context in Continuing Professional Development in the Health Professions

    Wednesday, July 24 from 11:00am - 12:00pm Central Time

    Free for SACME Members / $30 Non-Members




    Session Overview

    This month we continue our series with authors who contributed publications to the recent Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions (JCEHP) supplement themed “Conceptual Advances in Continuing Professional Development in the Health Professions.” Join us for the opportunity to hold conversations with scholars in our field who are examining and challenging some of the prevailing assumptions and proposing new empirical and theoretical insights.


    It has been argued that continuing professional development (CPD) to improve patient and health outcomes effectively requires a theoretically informed understanding of how context influences clinical behaviors and, thus, the success of interventions.  Frameworks that incorporate and consolidate constructs from a broad array of theories have been purported to allow researchers to capture and evaluate behavioral determinants. 

    In this session, the authors will outline frameworks commonly cited in the CPD literature and explore how they tend to conceptualize context as structured lists of barriers and facilitators.  Using an illustrative example of diabetes, a clinical condition for which continuing education has been positioned as a strategy to overcome clinical inertia, we explore how a framework approach to context may obscure consideration of how the dynamic relationships between clinicians, patients, and the social environments shape the possibilities for knowledge transfer into practice. They will then lead us in the discussion about how theories that draw attention to the social dynamics beyond what occurs within the controlled environment of the interventions themselves can increase the depth and richness of the contextual nature of why interventions succeed or fail.  

    As always, we welcome your thoughts and perspectives and hope to see you engaged in our VJC.
