Use of Clinical Data for Professional Development and Practice Change: Understanding Cultural and System Influences

Thursday, June 1, 2023, 11:00 AM -  12:00 PM CT

Free for SACME Members / $30 Non-Members

Session Overview

The use of clinical data in driving needs as well as outcomes of continuing professional development and practice improvement in healthcare has been a long-term and difficult to achieve goal. Recent qualitative research by the group of Canadian authors highlights cultural and systemic factors influencing the use of clinical data to inform lifelong learning (LLL) and self-initiated CPD activities. Trust, team-based approaches, and the need for assistance in translating clinical data into performance improvement strategies are some of the socio-cultural conditions that clinicians view as critical in addressing their engagement.

What additional factors or influences should we be considering in leveraging clinical data for CPD?
What conceptual shifts might be necessary to support the use of data for CPD?
How do educators respond to the tensions present when wanting to leverage clinical data for CPD?

    Join us for an interesting and important session that will include recommendations for our practice about how to best support CPD in our institutions based on this research and your experience.
