CME as an ego-boost?

RSS

This article from the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery is pretty interesting. It presents results from an outcomes investigation that was performed to compare physicians'

performance and attitude in a procedure-related CME activity.

The kicker is that while they found a correlation between increased confidence and

improved performance, but there was an even greater correlation between

increased confidence and their personal perception of improvement. As an alert reader who gave me a heads up on this article said in an e-mail, "A skeptic

might observe that, while CME improves doctors' performance, it also makes them

develop a false sense of confidence." (Thanks, Irwin!)
