Each activity is designed with the goal of increasing the impact, reach, and cost-effectiveness of the educational content. Distribution channels and education formats facilitate 24/7 learner accessibility including: Web-based activities, publications, teleconferences/Web conferences, clinical monographs, journal supplements, grand rounds, live programs, and CD-ROMs/DVDs. Most often, the interactive electronic case studies, strategic combination of different formats provides the most effective dissemination of education possible.
Through Patient-as-Textbook™ (PaT), MedEDirect also offers practice improvement activities (PI CME). PI CME are activities for which MedEDirect structures a self-directed, three-stage process by which a physician, or group of physicians, identifies and applies changes in practice resulting from knowledge gained in a CME activity. A case presentation format is used for reporting and documenting results. The goal is performance improvement in clinical practice. A PI CME activity may address any facet in the evaluation and management of a patient case related to the learning objectives of a CME activity already attended by the learner.
