Designing and Implementing a Worldwide Assessment and Evaluation System 


Miriam Ullmann, PhD, Manager, Faculty Development, 

AO Foundation, AO Education Institute, Switzerland

Mike Cunningham, Curriculum Development, 

AO Foundation, AO Education Institute, Switzerland


Thursday 12 April 2018  14:00 (BST) British Summer Time 

Background: The AO Foundation delivers education in several surgical subspecialties in all geographical regions with an annual average of 40,000 participants in 74 countries. Information for planning and evaluation is a key factor for our high-quality education.
Summary of work: Over a 3-year period, a set of agreed questions and processes for gathering and analysing pre and post event information was defined by our volunteer faculty leaders and an online system was implemented in more than 300 events globally.
Results: Many chairpersons have been trained to analyse and apply instruments such as motivation to learn, gap scores, educational impact, and commitment to change. Data are also analysed by our international planning committees to identify trends and areas for further development.  As a case study, examples and summary data from 38 facial trauma courses worldwide in 2017 will be presented along with recommended actions defined by the curriculum committee.

Conclusion: Structured, consistent data collection and reporting increases the value of information and help busy faculty to adjust individual events to meet the needs of the specific participants and to plan future improvements.

Optimizing the impact of CME/CPD/CE by integrating principles of behavioural change
by Lisa Sullivan BBus; MPhil
In Vivo Academy Limited, Australia

Wednesday 11 October 2017 @ 13:00 BST (British Summer Time)

Aim of Webinar:

The ever changing requirements for securing improved patient outcomes in CME/CPD/CE programmes are creating disconnects between the learner and the funding source. Understanding how the basic principles of behaviour change can be incorporated into lifelong learning development may help to broaden the education approach, heighten learner engagement and achieve greater impact.
The aim of this webinar is to discuss some well known principles of behaviour change in the context of CME/CPD/CE; what does the designing team need to consider and what are some examples of where these principles have produced a change in learner performance leading to improved patient outcomes.
This webinar is aimed at all CME/CPD/CE and medical education professionals interested in achieving learner change beyond knowledge transference alone.

Experiences in international interactive online CME from Latin America

24 May 2017, 15:00 British Summer Time (11:00 Uruguay time; 10:00 Eastern Daylight Time)

Speaker: Alvaro Margolis, MD, MS


Latin America is a diverse region with one million physicians, living in over 20 middle-income countries, who speak Spanish and Portuguese. 


Some global trends in CME, such as the increasing use of the Internet, the need for accountability through recertification, the greater importance of team-based inter-professional learning, and the change in sources of funding with a decrease of commercial sponsors, allow for disruptive innovations through international interactive online CME.


Examples of such programs will be shown, considering transfer issues to other regions, including Europe and globally.


Target audience: CME and medical education professionals interested in international and/or online CME.

Alignment India : Towards structured CME ecosystem

12 April 2017, 14:00 British Summer Time (18:30 Indian Standard Time; 09:00 Eastern Standard Time)

Speaker: Vaibhav Srivastava


Approximately 0.9 million doctors (more than 60% of which are family physicians) managing 1.3 billion Indians and treating both acute and chronic diseases in the most challenging and deprived infrastructure pose a great challenge to improve the healthcare system in India.


Although Indian regulators (Medical Council of India - MCI) are trying their best to produce more and more immaculately qualified doctors (400 plus medical colleges in India produce 50,000 plus medical graduates every year) along with increasing the postgraduate seats (which is currently not even 10% of graduate seats), there is dearth of these doctors who can pursue their career in India (more than 1 million Indian doctors are practicing or pursuing postgraduate studies outside India).


On academic development front, MCI is trying to structure CME in India since 2011; however, the growing complexity of social, political and Indian industry structure, prevents the Indian states (28) to accept and implement MCI regulation (only 1 state out of 28 made this mandatory).


But, the new government of India with their new proposed policy complimented by initiatives of Indian CME-CPD stakeholders with the help of GAME comes with a huge expectation in expediting India to align toward a structured CME-CPD ecosystem.
