MEASURING THE IMPACT OF A LIVE, CASE-BASED, MULTIFORMAT, INTERACTIVE CME PROGRAM ON IMPROVING COPD CARE
"Physicians who participated in live half-day, case-based, multi-format CME symposia were 50% more likely to provide evidence-based care for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) than those who did not participate, according to a study conducted by the Potomac Center for Medical Education (PCME), a Rockpointe company, and CE Outcomes, LLC. These findings, which point to the positive impact of CME on physician practice, were published in the International Journal of COPD on May 12, 2011."
