    Purpose

    The Continuing Medical Education (CME) Committees of Mount Sinai Beth Israel & Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt have as their primary purpose the promotion and facilitation of CME activities for physicians and other providers of medical care.

    The CME Program's goals are to provide education that will help promote the highest quality patient care, to increase physician knowledge, skills, and performance, to support research activities that further medical knowledge, and to assure the maintenance of both quality and patient safety.

    The CME Program's purpose is to measure and ultimately improve physician competencies, enhance performance-in-practice, and ultimately improve the outcomes of patient care. The CME Program's activities encompass a broad range of comprehensive topics based on the identified gaps in the needs of the physician communities it serves. Emphasis is placed on the identification of areas for improvement through a strong collaboration with the hospitals' Quality Improvement Departments.

    Content

    The content of the Mount Sinai Beth Israel & Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt CME programs encompass a broad range of primary care and specialty topics that are determined through a comprehensive needs assessment process. Topics are derived from the needs of learners, experts, national and specialty society guidelines, and observed quality indicators within the health service system. They are actively reviewed and analyzed in order to identify gaps in physician knowledge and/or performance. Content, based on evidence that constitutes best practices, is designed to ultimately result in the improvement in the health and/or outcomes of patients and/or significant changes in current practice.

    Educational Audience

    Our CME Program targets multidisciplinary audiences. Learners include physicians and other providers of medical care from our health care system, as well as local, national, and international medical and related professionals.

    Types of Activities Provided

    Mount Sinai Beth Israel & Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt offer a variety of CME activities, including: Regularly Scheduled Series (RSS); Live Conferences and Workshops, both directly sponsored and jointly sponsored; Internet-Based Education and Enduring Materials, both print and electronic that enable the System to provide educational activities that target a large and geographically diverse audience.

    The identified needs and types of interventions planned determine the learning methods selected. The planners' understanding of the learning environment associated with a targeted audience determines the overall educational design of each activity.

    Expected Results of the Program

    As a result of their participation in CME activities, learners will demonstrate changes in competence, improvement in performance-in-practice, and/or improved patient outcomes. Metrics for determination of success include the following:

    • For changes in competence: posttests determine that knowledge was gained, outcomes assessments, especially case-based vignettes, determine if confidence increased, and that a strategy for taking knowledge gained and applying it to the practice setting was actually achieved.
    • For improvement in practice-based performance: outcome assessment will show that the educational intervention resulted in a significant change in physician behaviors in accordance with activity goals.
    • For improvements in patient outcomes: hospital-based Quality Initiatives assessments indicate that closing the gap through education resulted in improved quality, and/or safety, and/or health outcomes of patients, or other indicators as identified in the gap analysis.
