Caution: CME Consultant at Work
If I ruled the world, educational activity objectives would be measurable every time. The word “understand” would be outlawed.
If I ruled the world, disclosure forms would be turned in 2 weeks BEFORE the deadline, completely filled out, signed and dated.
If I ruled the world, all of my activity data would batch upload into PARS at the ACCME the first time.
If I ruled the world, hospital IT departments would seamlessly allow emails about upcoming CME activities to flow, and would allow CME staff to participate in webinars using any webinar software the vendor suggests.
If I ruled the world, every ACCME Progress Report and IMQ Interim Report issued would also come with a box of See’s Candy dark chocolate covered mint patties. (That’s only fair.)
If I ruled the world, every Quality Department in the hospital would talk to the staff in the Medical Education office and figure out how they could help each other reach their goals.
If I ruled the world, the public would understand that continuing medical education is NOT a vehicle to get more money into doctor’s pockets but instead the best possible way to ensure health professionals are providing best-practice, evidence-based care to them and their loved ones.
Whoops, there’s that word understand. I guess I would outlaw that word for everyone but me, if I ruled the world!
(Musing: A product of contemplation; a thought.)
