CME/CPD 2.0 Are We Close?
Lawrence Sherman*

Continuing Medical Education and Continuing Professional Development (CME and CPD) represent the longest portion of physician life-long learning, yet have the least structure of all medical education components. Whilst CME has certainly evolved over the last 10 years, it lags behind other physician-oriented information delivery when it comes to technological innovation and use. An ongoing review of electronic CME (eCME) and other technology-based CME platforms continues to reveal a paucit...

Cme 2.0 Takes a Virtual Village
Lawrence Sherman*

This session will provide real-world examples of the CME 2.0 educational continuum from assessing educational needs through measuring educational outcomes. Best practice examples will demonstrate how this is currently being done. A glimpse into the future will also be provided. The confluence of three topics: e-learning, Participatory Medicine (in which patients are involved in their own healthcare) and Communities of Practice (how medicine is practiced) meet at a place called CME 2.0. The ...

The Long and Winding Road: Using Social Media to Navigate the Intersections Between the Journeys of Physician Learners and Patients
Lawrence Sherman*, Mathena Pavan*

Social media platforms continue to emerge as incredibly useful tools for medical educationalists in their design, development and implementation of continuing medical education (CME) activities.

In the past, a literature review and a discussion with an expert were enough to justify the development of a CME activity. There was very little interactivity with the learners, and even less involve...

Conference 2 Point Oh!
Mathena Pavan*, Lawrence Sherman*

The use of social media for educational purposes is a well established in the healthcare professional community. There is an increasing use of social media technologies at live educational events representing activity at several points in the educational process. Previous analysis has focused on data of engagement and little on the educational relevance. We hope to go beyond this engaging the audience in a real time discussion both inside and outside the room to highlight and evaluate ...

Medical Education 2.0 - Socializing and Personalizing
Lawrence Sherman*

Technology enhances the ability of clinicians to practice medicine. Technology enhances the ability of medical educators to teach and for students to find, use and benefit from courses. Technology enhances the ability of patients to play an integral role in their own medical care. These three groups, clinicians, educators and patients, each follow inevitably intersecting journeys; technology is the common factor. The Medicine 2.0 environment is the common platform in which each of the thr...
