ALiEM – Academic Life in Emergency Medicine – MEdIC series: The Case of the Difficult Consult

Inspired by the Harvard Business Review Cases and led by Dr. Teresa Chan (@TChanMD) and Dr. Brent Thoma (@BoringEM), the Medical Education In Cases (MEdIC) series puts difficult medical education cases under a microscope.


Via Deirdre Bonnycastle
David Swaddle's insight:

This sounds like a great CPD initiative that will work at many levels.

 

Essentially, one a month the MEdiC team pose a challenging hypothetical dilemma that has been suggested by their community of educators. It is then discussed, with medical education experts providing extra input.

 

Questions from the community of Emergency Medicine to the community of EM, suggested by the community and moderated by the community. One to watch.

 

Are there any specialists out there who would like to comment on the quality of the end product? Does it acheive the challenging, deep-thought conversations that it sets out to stimulate?

Hot topics in international medical meetings from the Rome CME-CPD Group annual meeting.

David Swaddle's insight:

A look at CME/CPD trends from a quite practical doctor/pharma company perspective.

 

It's very tempting to think of CPD as primarily online, but the majority is actually face-to-face. Conferences, seminars and scientific meetings make up a large proportion of the CPD mix for the average doctor and these have traditionally had a fair amount of pharmaceutical company sponsorship. But, that it is all changing..

It would have been interesting to see where the statement that "informal learning—learning in the workplace—currently comprises 80 percent of all learning done by physicians" came from, and what was identified as 'informal learning'. Related: http://www.informl.com/where-did-the-80-come-from/
David Swaddle's comment, September 4, 2013 1:30 AM
Gilbert, I don't know the group personally, but they seem to be a reasonably respectable bunch of people (http://rome-group.org/content/about-us) and their aim seems to be to create international standards for accrediation of CME/CPD so that credits are recognised internationally. I'm interested in the standards that are used for accrediting CME/CPD activities as this is not currently done in Australia.

An interesting piece on commercial bias and CME/CPD.

 

Many articles about bias are cautionary, this one seeks to set the record straight from the author's personal viewpoint. Very interesting a contains a few good links to research.

 

We need to consider sponsor bias in CPD materials, but maybe the expectation of bias is greater than the actual bias? Food for thought.

David Swaddle's curator insight, December 8, 2013 5:10 PM

How long should your eLearning video be? 6 minutes, it seems.

 

It's been a while since I saw any research into video length and engagement, so I was intrigued to read Philip Guo's research at edX.

 

Students tended to watch most, or all, of videos shorter than 6 minutes. Odd as it may seem, when the duration was longer than 6 minutes the time viewing the video fell to less than 6 minutes. The longer it was, the less they watched.

 

Better plan courses to use short, snappy videos rather than long rambling lectures in the future.

Why are Asian nations such strong education performers?

 

Researchers and policymakers are asking this question as students in East Asia and Singapore outperform Western counterparts in international tests and other international comparisons. While culture certainly plays a role, these countries’ education systems share some other common factors, including an emphasis on teacher quality, which could inform reform efforts elsewhere.


Via Gilbert Faure au nom de l'ASSIM
David Swaddle's insight:

IMHO, one of the failings of current CPD frameworks is the almost totalitarian self-directed learning principle. Does it build a tendancy not to look beyond our existing world? Does 100% self-guided learning mean that the teacher has almost no training in teaching?

In Europe at UEMS EACCME, we have specific "official" evaluation procedures for live events and for e-learning programs when providers are requesting such accrditation.
