Not your grandpa’s CME: what we know (and need to know) about the continuing professional development of physicians
Date/Time: Wednesday 15 March 2017 – 1400 UK/GMT

Date/Time: Tuesday 28 March 2017 – 1300 UK/GMT
Professor Vivienne Marie Baumfield, Centre for Research in Professional Learning, University of Exeter, UK and Dr Jane Stewart, School of Medical Education, Newcastle University, UK

Feedback can enhance mutual professional growth: But how can we promote bidirectional conversations?
Date/Time: Tuesday 25 April – 1400 UK/GMT
Dr. Subha Ramani, MBBS, MMEd, MPH, Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, United States
Medical educators report numerous challenges to providing feedback. Additionally, there is often a mismatch between the perceptions of providers and recipients on the quality of feedback. A specific area that warrants further discussion is the concept of bidirectional feedback which could enhance the quality of feedback overall.
Why do you care about that?
Date/Time: Wednesday 10 May - 1400 UK/BST
Ayelet Kuper and Cynthia Whitehead, The Wilson Centre, University of Toronto, Canada
The values that drive medical education scholarship and research Understanding the values that drive our scholarly practices helps refine our research questions, target our educational efforts, and maintain our passion about our work. In this webinar, we will delineate different approaches to values in research, model outlining the values underpinning our own work, and challenge participants to articulate the values that drive their own work.
Clinical decision making as a special case of scientific reasoning? Theory and practical implications for medical education
Date/Time: Wednesday 7 June - 1000 UK/BST
Martin Fischer, Institute for Medical Education, University Hospital of LMU Munich, Germany
Every graduate leaving university should be able to make evidence-based decisions in practice and provide good reasons for these decisions. Medicine is a field that is characterized by multiple decisions with important and often immediate consequences for patients and society. This webinar focusses on an interdisciplinary model for scientific reasoning and argumentation. It will describe clinical decision making as a special case of reasoning and argumentation in various contexts. The aim of this webinar is to summarize important insights into how clinical decision making works and how it could better be fostered by medical educators. It is aiming at clinical teachers who are interested in a better understanding of clinical reasoning and how it could be taught
better in the future.
