Medical meetings have been cancelled, postponed or converted into virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis.
This Virtual Journal Club will help us collectively imagine CME/CPD conferences and other meetings in 2021 and beyond. We will address the following areas:
- the state of affairs in medical meetings prior to the crisis, including its value proposition to the different stakeholders;
- solutions found as a response to the crisis and how they provide value to the stakeholders, and
- possible new models for medical meetings after the COVID-19 pandemic.
This special free session of the SACME’s Virtual Journal Club is organized to help our larger CME/CPD community to connect and learn with and from each other. We will share and discuss examples of issues we face and exchange experiences and resources available within our community and broader healthcare and societal context. Please join us and be prepared to contribute to the dialogue.
Before the VJC:
Please reflect on and list the two most important difficulties that you are experiencing since the COVID-19 crisis regarding the organization of medical meetings.
We will reserve plenty of time for learning from each other and discussion of experience and examples of successful ways of overcoming challenges we face in developing, managing and evaluating CPD/CME at this time. Come prepared to contribute.
Suggested readings will be sent to all registrants.
