The goal of continuing medical education (CME) is to speed dissemination and adoption of best practices by physicians and their healthcare teams. Increasing focus on healthcare team performance and growing demands on their time and resources underlines the importance of efficient, effective CME opportunities. This webinar will discuss innovative CME solutions using current education design and active learning strategies, with practical examples using the collaborative experience of volunteer members and staff from the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe current outcomes evidence and future directions for CME based on the current healthcare environment and needs.
  2. Discuss practical applications of medical education theory and active learning strategies to increase efficient transfer of knowledge, skills, and attitudes through CME activities.
  3. Relate these applications to CME opportunities offered by medical societies, offering past and current CHEST CME efforts and innovations as examples.
