I will be at the Medicine 2.0 conference at Stanford this fall. I’ll be speaking about mobile technology and the continuing medical education (CME) industry. If you’ll be there, I look forward to seeing you there.
Here’s a copy of my abstract:
“We will explore the impact of incorporating social media and social learning into formal certified continuing medical education (CME) activities for US-based physicians. We will examine several examples where social media is used to assess clinical practice gaps and educational needs of physicians. We will review specific CME activities that incorporate the use of social media and social learning and examine several examples of comments and discussions that are relevant to the stated learning objectives of each activity. We will also explore the impact of social media on physician engagement and learning.”
Medicine 2.0 ’11 will contain a mix of traditional academic/research, practice and business presentations, keynote presentations, and panel discussions to discuss emerging issues. We strive for an interdisciplinary mix of presenters from different countries and disciplines (e.g. health care, social sciences, computer science, engineering, or business) and with a different angle (research, practice, and business).
