CME Mission Statement

Our mission is to sponsor high quality educational opportunities in the fields of medicine and surgery for all physician staff members of Miami Valley Hospital, a community-based teaching hospital affiliated with Wright State University. Physicians participating in sponsored educational activities are expected to advance their knowledge of the practice of medicine and enhance their ability to provide effective modern patient care. This in turn will lead to the improvement of the health of our community. Other physicians and allied professionals may also participate in sponsored programs when the essence of our mission is fulfilled.

Content Areas:
The educational activities developed and generated through the identification of quality and/or professional practice gaps will be for both the primary care and the specialty physician, and the content will match the learners’ current or potential scope of knowledge, competence, or performance. Some activities will be identified and developed by member clinical departments although they will be guided and approved by the CME Committee. Examples of types of needs assessment utilized include but are not limited to data provided by Miami Valley Hospital Medical Staff committees, literature published in peer-reviewed journals, internal and external quality assurance data, epidemiological data, and direct observation of physicians or processes within Miami Valley Hospital.

Target Audience:
The target audience consists primarily of all physician staff members of Miami Valley Hospital and secondarily of other physicians and allied professionals in the surrounding community.

Types of Activities:
Miami Valley Hospital offers Category 1 continuing medical education for its target audience via participation in a variety of publicized formats, including but not limited to one-day symposia, grand rounds, case conferences, tumor boards, lectures, and other methods appropriate to effectively communicate the objectives and obtain the desired results of the activities. These are presented by experts within and outside the institution and via electronic enduring materials. The Craig Memorial Library is available to staff 24 hours daily for self-directed learning that can be self-claimed for Category 2 credit. Resources provided there include computerized databases, Internet access, and audiovisual and print media.

Expected Results:
Miami Valley Hospital anticipates changes in competence, performance, or patient outcomes, or a combination thereof, as a result of its educational offerings. The effectiveness of continuing medical education events is assessed by the participants via direct questionnaire immediately following each presentation, which also allows us to maintain records of attendance to grant individuals appropriate Category I CME credit. Collection of patient care data of participants before and after the educational event via an electronic response system, dissemination of a post-event survey of participants to determine the impact the event had upon their practice, or assessment of patient/community health indices may also be used when appropriate to lend further support of educational effectiveness. Assessment of achievement of mission statement goals will show the efficacy of previously identified and implemented changes and will highlight areas where improvements still may be made. Miami Valley Hospital is committed to fostering a learning environment that creates changes in individual and organizational performance as a result of a dedicated commitment to providing quality continuing medical education.
