About This Show
This series gives healthcare professionals an opportunity to hear thought leaders in continuing medical education discuss issues related to methodology, effectiveness, funding, measurement, future technologies, and other aspects of CME that make the field so vibrant. The discussion will remind healthcare professionals how important and powerfully how they learn is related to what they learn, and motivate them to continue their lifelong learning and provide strategies for putting what they learn into practice.

Annually, there are around 150,000 certified activities produced in the US annually. However, meta-analyses and research estimates that less than 20% of those educational activities drive behavior change and probably less than 5% lead to improvements in patient outcomes. With a vast array of continuing education (CE) activities available to healthcare professionals (HCPs) and the delay in data on the effectiveness and outcomes of CE activities, it's difficult for HCPs and CE stakeholders to determine the most effective education that has the greatest potential to lead to behavior change thus improving patient care. During the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Healthcare Professions annual meeting host Alicia Sutton speaks with guests Hilary Schmidt, PhD, John Ruggiero, PhD, MPA, CHCP, Gregory Salinas, PhD, and Nili Solomonov in a two-part interview covering: The current state of CE activities and address the lack of objective, reliable, and empirical assessment available to prospectively identify CE activities that have the greatest potential to lead to improvements in health care practice. The development of a new Instructional Design Rating Scale and its reliability and predictive validity in driving behavior change through rigorous research methods based on the science of human learning.
