has been busy lately, judging from the latest e-newsletter. The
MedBiquitous Annual Conference
sounds interesting. Scheduled for April 25-27 in Baltimore, it will include "sessions on quality improvement, competencies, virtual patients, e-learning, and SCORM for Healthcare. Speakers include Dr. Murray Kopelow of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, Dr. Donald Melnick of the National Board of Medical Examiners, Dr. Don Detmer of the American Medical Informatics Association, and Dr. Edward Miller, Dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine." That's a good lineup.
It also announced that the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has launched MedEdPORTAL, a new publishing venue through which medical school faculty can publish and share educational resources and technologies. Read more about it here. And it has made pedagogical and technical Guidelines for Journal-based Continuing Education available.
In other Medbiquitous news:
In November, the Conjoint Committee on Continuing Medical Education held a CME Summit to give CEOs and CME professionals the opportunity to discuss emerging developments to change the CME industry. Dr. Peter Greene, Executive Director of MedBiquitous, outlined the need for standards to help learners identify gaps in competency, identify relevant resources, and track and measure CME and performance improvement activities. To view Dr. Greene‘s presentation, Enabling the Tracking and Measurement of CME and Performance Improvement, visit this site.
Visit the Medbiquitous site for more on what they've been up to. Lots of interesting projects.
