CME PURPOSE: Implement and support continuing medical education programs to improve the performance of healthcare providers and enhance patient outcomes. Through education, to disseminate and integrate new information and technologies from scientific investigation, subjects that the practicing physician must master in order to improve patient care, close professional practice gaps, outcomes research and faculty selection based on outstanding teaching talent in addition to accomplishments in biomedical research nationally and internationally.
CONTENT AREAS: The program content should provide a practical foundation in the early stages of new knowledge or technology. This includes basic information the participant needs to supplement his or her prior training and experience and a clear presentation of practical clinical applications in the overall patient care context. As the field evolves, the educational program evolves to reflect critical assessment of the practical efficacy of new technology and economic issues related to cost-effective medical care. Promedica's areas of expertise are in the fields of cardiac surgery, cardiology, and interventional cardiology.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Cardiac Surgeons, Cardiologists, Cardiovascular Researchers, Interventional Cardiologists, and Healthcare Professionals associated with these specialties.
TYPES OF ACTIVITIES: Live on tape surgeries, didactic seminars, workshops, and wet labs. Promedica's educational formats allow adequate time for question and answer sessions
EXPECTED RESULTS: Our continuing professional medical education developmental program is designed to enhance patient care and outcomes by educating physicians and other healthcare professionals to make accurate, up-to-date decisions in their daily practice-based environment.
In addition, the results expected from our CME activities educational efforts include a) activities that are designed to challenge the physician to make comparisons between existing methods of treatment, b) to evaluate the clinical usefulness and limitations of new technology and its success rate in patient care c) appropriate measures and protocols for effective use of the new technologies d) close professional practice gaps, and e) when appropriate, to determine cost effectiveness of patient care. Promedica is committed to a CME program with the expected results as above and ultimately, the goal of all of our CME activities is to enhance the quality of patient care.
