New Presidents Column!

December 2016

   

 

Dear CME Colleagues,

 

As our 2016 year comes to a close, I thought my providing a quick update on some of the GAME activities during this past year and the next would show you all how busy your Board has and continues to be:


Conferences in 2016 and 2017:

India and South America both had very successful regional conferences in February and March respectively while we also hosted our North American Regional Conference just prior to the World Congress of CPD in San Diego.  In addition, GAME hosted another annual conference together with AMEE at the Barcelona AMEE conference in August. We were also successful in hosting two pre-conference workshops with AMEE, one on patient engagement, organised by our very active Patient Engagement SIG Chair, Laura Muttini, with the second workshop being run by myself, focusing on the challenges of organising and deploying a US Grant based IME programme outside of the US.

The European CME Forum recently held in Amsterdam was once again an excellent conference and GAME was fortunate to also host a 90 minute workshop session with India, South America and Asia CME/CPD issues as the topics covered.

 

2017 is shaping up to be a very big year for GAME. Our first big conference is being held in conjunction with the Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC), where GAME will run a 4 hour workshop on Wednesday 11th January in Singapore. This will be our first opportunity with this high profile conference so we are hoping to be able to utilise this to increase our membership across Asia.

 

GAME will be hosting two different sessions as part of ACEhp in 2017, with the Global CME Awards ceremony on Friday night 27th and our GAME education session on Sunday morning 29th. Hope to see many of you attending both these sessions.

 

Our Indian colleagues are hosting the 3rd India Regional Conference on March 4th 2017 in Mumbai. The goal of this conference is to produce and submit submitted recommendations to the India government in an attempt to secure nationwide and mandatory accreditation for physicians. Vaibhav Srivastava, the Program Chair for this 3rd conference is optimistic that being able to bring the entire Indian ecosystem of CME together with this ‘standard’ goal will be quite influential with the decision makers in government.

 

2017 will also see GAME hosting a half day Conference as part of the SACME congress on May 16, in Arizona. We have almost finalised the agenda for this meeting so registrations will commence soon.

 

AMEE 2017 will be held in Helsinki and GAME has decided not to host our annual meeting aligned to AMEE next year but to rather focus on a 90 minute symposium within the main AMEE program.  We are also fortunate that AMEE is extending use of their webinar system for GAME to be able to provide our members with interesting topics and issues through this system. Watch the website for more details on activities around AMEE 2017.

 

The GAME Board

We elected three new Board members this year with Dr Zhimin Jia (China), Dr Thomas Kellner, (Germany) and Pam McFadden (USA) with Pam also joining the GAME Executive as our new Membership Chair. The GAME Board also saw the resignation of immediate past president, Maureen Doyle-Scharff who I believe everyone knows has worked tirelessly for our Board and organisation now for many years. Don Moore, also chose to step down from the Board due to an overload of commitments.
We do though have a new President Elect in Dale Kummerle, who I know will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role of President when he replaces me in August 2017.

 

NEEDED - COMMITTEE MEMBERS

We urgently need GAME members to step up to the plate and offer to be part of our Committees. In the first instance we need members of the Program Committee to work closely with Alvaro Margolis who will take on the Chair of this committee from January 2017. Conferences have in the past been the lifeblood of GAME and to continue to offer topics and speakers that are of interest and stretch our own learning, we need you to help to organise, invite and participate in these activities.  

 

If you don’t want to be part of the Program Committee, I hope you will at least consider writing to me to provide your ideas for conference topics and speakers…you cannot complain about our program content if you are not prepared to help with ideas.
 I can always be reached at president@game-cme.org

 

So in closing, allow me to wish you all a happy and restful Christmas and New Year and if you are travelling I wish you safe and fruitful journeys and look forward to working with you all in 2017 and beyond.
