Medical writers play a vital role in creating continuing medical education (CME) materials that help physicians and other health care providers remain current in the knowledge and skills needed to provide high-quality care. Students will add to what they learned in Introduction to Medical Writing about learning objectives, needs assessments, and adult learning principles and will write a complete CME activity that includes these elements. Students will learn how to select the best resources for developing a CME activity, how to choose the most appropriate format for an activity, how to select the proper scope of content, and how to write questions based on evidence and best practices. Various types of CME activities will be addressed, including print, live (slide-based), and self-study. Students will also learn about evaluation tools to establish whether educational needs and objectives have been met and whether participants' knowledge, competence, or performance has improved.
Note: To be eligible to take this course you must have completed all of the other courses in the Medical Writing program with a B-/80% or higher.
