You Can’t Always Get What You Want, But You Can Get What You Need (From Faculty) (Click here to view archive)
Sponsored by CTI Meeting Technology (formerly Coe Truman Technologies/WEBGES)
Faculty who participate in continuing education programs are generally very busy people with many competing professional responsibilities, and, unfortunately, we’re often not high on their personal totem pole. So how do you make sure you are prepared to maximize your faculty interactions? In this session, our panel will focus on topics such as setting appropriate expectations, preparing for planning calls, and strategies to maintain a productive dialogue with faculty throughout the course of a project.

Why Did My Grant Request Get Rejected? (Click here to view archive)
Sponsored by Imedex
This is a challenging question frequently asked by many in the CME/CE community. For this session, we have gathered together individuals from a variety of commercial supporters to discuss common pitfalls of declined grant proposals and highlight what they look for in “successful” requests. This will be a learner-driven session guided by questions submitted from the CME/CE community about the  grant proposal/review process. Stay tuned for a survey asking for your questions in the very near future!

Preparing for Tomorrow’s Learners… Today (Click here to view archive)
The demographics of the healthcare professional workforce, their professional and personal demands, and evolving technologies are quickly converging to create a new “face” of our learning audience. So what does the workforce of the future look like, and how might they want their professional education delivered? In this session, our panel will look at demographic trends among healthcare professionals and dive into recent research that provides insight into these areas, while also offering advice for organizations planning for future delivery methods of professional education.

Expanding the Focus: Patient Education from CME Providers (Click here to view archive)
This session will explore the growing interest and demand for patient education in an historically healthcare provider-focused field. What are the drivers behind this growth, the barriers we need to overcome as a community, and the potential impact? Perspectives will be shared from a medical education chairperson/frequent CME faculty member, a commercial supporter, and a patient advocate.

More Than Moore’s: Alternate Methods to Measure and Reports Outcomes Data (Click here to view archive)
Since the initial publication of Dr. Donald Moore’s 7 Levels of CME Outcomes in 2003, this framework has often been cited as the industry standard for reporting results of educational initiatives. But what happens when this framework doesn’t fit and you want to use an alternate, more appropriate method for a given initiative? Will supporters even allow an alternate method of measurement?

Grand Rounds in the 21st Century: Fixing the Historical Model (Click here to view archive)
Sponsored by Paradigm Medical Communications
Many hospitals of all shapes and sizes are struggling to maintain interest in their grand rounds series across specialties. The idea of “a speaker, a slide deck, and a donut” simply is not working any longer. So does that mean that grand rounds are dead? Not necessarily. This session will take a look at how several hospitals and hospital systems are reinventing their grand rounds to breathe new life into the traditional model and improve the experience both for faculty and learners.
