Globalization of CPD: Integration of healthcare workforce for quality patient care


Presenters: Dr. Samar Aboulsoud, Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners, Ministry of Public Health, Qatar and Dr. Helena Filipe, Hospital das For├žas Armadas/PL-EMGFA, Hospital SAMS in Lisbon,College of Ophthalmology, International Council of Ophthalmology
Date: 20th May 2019 at 14:00 + 1 Hour (BST)

Summary: Globalization of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is driven by shared educational principles and management trends that facilitate international standards in CPD. These are enforced through instructional design, clinical teaching and assessment methods based on education theory, effective communication skills, CPD accreditation committees’ work, and CPD programs and systems strengthening medical education global principles.

Globalization of CPD standards, resulting from international collaborations is meaningful as it helps to identify and address national/regional challenges in healthcare delivery systems and to consistently apply a regulation plan on the evolving CPD provider organizations and programs.  Globalization supports evidence-based learning and professional practice that will ensure safe patient-centered care.  It opens doors for healthcare professionals (HCPs) to attend and participate in international CPD activities to improve their professional competence and be credit awarded.  It provides opportunities to advance learning and to tier level the healthcare system focusing the HCPs needs whilst maintaining transparency and highlighting the profession accountability.  A global recognition of CPD standards promotes collaborative engagements to support internationally qualified workforce able to deliver high quality patient care, nevertheless considering cultural diversity and regional needs.

If you are already involved in CPD, are thinking of being involved or simply would like to learn more about CPD in the continuum of Medical Education this webinar is for you. Join us and share your experience!


Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): a disruptive innovation in Continuing Medical Education?


In association with GAME

Presenter:  Alvaro Margolis, EviMed
Date:  6 May 2019 at 14:00 + 1 Hour (BST)

Summary:  Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are now common across disciplines, including Medicine. In this Webinar, a precise definition of the academic term “disruptive innovation” will be shown, followed by an analysis the potential for disruption of MOOCs for health care professionals and teams, including practical examples from the presenter’s experience, and a discussion with the audience about the applicability of these experiences to their own settings.

The aim of the Webinar is to show the potential of MOOCs in healthcare.

It is aimed at physicians and educators who are responsible for designing and implementing continuing medical education and professional development programs.

Assessing Social and behavioural Sciences: Square Peg in a Round Hole


Presenters: Dr Jeni Harden, University of Edinburgh and Dr Kathleen Kendall, University of Southampton
Date: 22nd May 2019 at 15:00 + 1 Hour (BST)

Summary: Attention has turned in recent years to the broader inclusion of social and behavioural sciences (SBS) in medical curricula. However, there is as yet only limited evidence about how best to assess these subjects. This is very pertinent given that SBS questions have recently been included in the MCAT exam in the USA (in MCQ format) and are likely also to be included in the new UK Medical Licensing Assessment. In this webinar will consider why SBS assessment in medical education is like fitting a square peg into a round hole and whether it is the peg or the hole that needs to change shape. We will discuss key issues including: what is being assessed (knowledge, skills, competencies); what methods we use to assess; and whether, and on what basis, assessment tools are considered to be ‘fit for purpose’. 

This webinar will be of interest to anyone with an interest in  teaching and assessing the social and behavioural sciences in medicine.


Knowledge translation, patient safety, continuing education, faculty development and quality improvement: opening up the CPD imagination.


Presenter: Simon Kitto, University of Ottowa, Ontario, Canada
Date: 3 June 2019
Time: 14:00 + 1 hour (BST)

Summary: This presentation explores the relationship between knowledge translation (KT), patient safety (PS), continuing education (CE), faculty development (FD) and quality improvement (QI) with a view to stimulating new conceptualizations and effective operationalization of continuing professional development (CPD) across the health professions. Together, the forementioned individual modes of intervention activity committed to the improvement of patient care and health outcomes through the enhancement of healthcare professionals' knowledge skills and clinical practice behaviour.                       

The need for this concept is premised on the idea that each individual intervention approach to making behavioural, organizational and systematic change to improve patient outcomes is necessary, but not sufficient. Although they share the common goal of improvng health care provider performance, from an organizational standpoint the actual design and implementation of multimodal interdisciplinary CPD interventions remains a challenge.
Issues such as the existence of an implicit epistemic hierarchy, subsequent questions of leadership in CPD interventions, historical variations in the organisational location of traditional CE activities, and in the healthcare system organisation globally, present significant obstacles. These factors restrict what I call the CPD imagination - the process of 'thinking otherwise' about what kinds of ways of thinking and tools might constitute CPD interventions. Exemplars of the CPD imagination are presented in the hope of stimulationg new forms  of creative CPD.
