Continuing Medical Education
Starting in 2008, Pro-Change began systematically applying the Transtheoretical Model to the implementation and evaluation of live and on-line continuing medical education (CME). Since then, Pro-Change has participated in CME initiatives in several therapeutic areas. For each initiative, we’ve designed and conducted an outcome evaluation based on clinician readiness to adopt a specified performance improvement. This unique approach permits an assessment of the impact of CME activities on the entire sample of participants, rather than the minority who adopt the performance
In addition, Pro-Change provides extensive consultation on how faculty can incorporate behavior change messages into the curriculum to facilitate adoption of the performance improvement. Some initiatives have also included post-activity feedback to reinforce appropriate behavior change messages.
We have presented findings from our CME initiatives at the 2009 and 2012 Alliance for Medical Education Conference. Publications and presentations from other subsequent initiatives are in development.
