Davis. This resource will help you design, deliver, and evaluate evidence-based continuing education and professional development programs with the goal of keeping practitioners’ knowledge, skills, attitudes, competencies, and performance current and patient-centered. Authored by key thought leaders in the field, including members of the Society of Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME), the book presents today’s most advanced thinking on how to empower clinicians to continuously improve their performance throughout their professional careers.

In an era of rapidly changing health systems, anyone responsible for educating and developing health care professionals will want to take advantage of the insights presented in this book. Please note, supplies are limited, so be sure to register early to receive a copy of the book at the 2018 IACME Annual Meeting.
