The need for continuing education has never been more evident than at this point in history where hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 continue to climb despite vaccines being readily available and the lead news story in healthcare focusing on the pleas of health officials for people to stop ingesting animal dewormer as part of their treatment plans. Our role as continuing healthcare education professionals is an important one for the overall health of the people on this planet we all live on, and we owe it to them to stay at the top of our game.
With that rather heavy opening in mind (note from Scott: I felt like I was about to get an enema – lighten up Francis), we are extremely pleased to announce the release of the CMEpalooza Fall 2021 agenda! Our goal with this agenda was to focus on feedback we have received from all of you and develop sessions that will provide you with useful information that you can use in your daily work life. Education to help us do what we do a little better. We all have different roles in this industry, but we hope that everyone will be able to find a little something in the agenda that is helpful.
Here is a direct link to the agenda. We hope to see all of you on October 13!
As usual, there may be some tweaks and updates to the agenda along the way. In particular, we would like to put out a call for panelists for the Tech Tools for the CME Professional session.
Scott here. Yes, this is one of those times where we know the kind of session we want but we’re not exactly sure who the best people would be to serve as our panelists. What we’re looking for is people who like technology and use a variety of interesting and/or unusual online tools/apps to make their professional and personal lives easier. We did this session 7 years ago – it’s essentially a chance for you to play “show and tell” with our audience. For instance, someone told me last week about this app where you can scan the bar codes of various things you eat and it keeps track of your daily intake of the good and bad things you body does/does not need. More work that I’m probably interested in, but sounded cool nonetheless. Maybe you have some tools you started to use professionally now that we’re living in a virtual world that you would like to share with our community. That’s also great. If this sounds intriguing, or even if you want to recommend someone, fill out the form below and I’ll be in touch.
