CME Matters….
and So Do The Results

As the landscape of continuing medical education is innovating and improving, so are the results of the education … and we can prove it. In today’s healthcare environment, it is more important than ever to know exactly what impact CME is making on clinical practice, and on the lives of patients over the globe.

We collaborate with national healthcare organizations, KOL’s, and local associations to address healthcare quality gaps every day. In alignment with the national standards for quality CME, our team embraces a mixed-method educational outcomes approach that tackles the current practice challenges in neurology, psychiatry, primary care, inflammation, immunology, and infectious disease.

2017 Presentations

 

screening and treatment of psoriasis
Presented at Orlando Derm Aesthetic & Clinical Conference and Maui Derm Meeting
We incorporated medical simulation into an activity on psoriasis to provide an engaging and real-life experience for learners. Educational outcomes analysis revealed up to 235% more participants than controls obtained correct responses on knowledge questions, and 429% more participants implemented a best practice behavior, clearly demonstrating the success of this format.

 
 
 

seizure action plans for patients with epilepsy

Presented at ACEhp Annual Meeting
Integrating the patient voice into educational content provides clinicians with an opportunity to hear patient experiences aligned with the latest evidence. Results from educational outcomes analysis on an activity in epilepsy demonstrated this to be an impactful approach, with participants outperforming controls on knowledge by up to 471%, and on behavior by 450%.

 
 

predictive modeling
Presented at IME Conference and SACME Annual Meeting
CMEO’s unique offering, PredictCME, is based on a predictive modeling technique known as CHAID, which enables a visually-intuitive tree-based output. We applied this method to outcomes data from an activity on Alzheimer’s disease and found two significant predictors of practice behavior. This information will be used to help maximize the impact of future activities.

 
 
 

improved clinician knowledge performance multiple sclerosis
Presented at CMSC Annual Meeting
We believe the patient must be at the center of all CME. We engaged an advisory panel of MS patient leaders to gain insight into the patient perspective and incorporate that into the educational content. Educational outcomes analysis showed this method to be successful in MS, with up to a 480% improvement in knowledge, a 204% improvement in performance, and a 195% improvement in confidence.
