American Board of Medical Specialties Conference

ABMS, a  prominent board of medical specialty boards, will hold its annual conference in Chicago, September 25-27.  Healthcare professionals attending will include medical educators interested in professional development of clinicians.

Web Courseworks’ customer CHEST (the American College of Chest Physicians) educates hundreds of practicing physicians, annually, on technology and procedures relating to topics like difficult airway incubation and specialized ultrasound techniques.  This year, Greg Lasko, Manager of Planning and Evaluation at CHEST, and our Dr. Andy Hicken, will be presenting a poster describing how CHEST has developed a standardized scorecard evaluation for its physician education courses.  This course scorecard utilizes Donald Moore’s CME Evaluation Model, which encompasses learner satisfaction, data points on learning, competence and performance (skills) assessment. CHEST uses medical simulators like this high fidelity Laerdal mannequin simulator to increase efficacy.
