Continuing Professional Development in Partnership for Knowledge Transfer

 

Continuing professional development (CPD) is one of the principal means by which physicians maintain, improve,and broaden the knowledge and skills required for optimal patient care and safety. However, the lack of a widely accepted instrument to assess the impact of CPD activities on clinical practice thwarts researchers' comparisons of the effectiveness of CPD activities.

Using an integrated model for the study of healthcare professionals' behavior, our project, Continuing Professional Development in Partnership for Knowledge Transfer, aims at developing a theory-based, valid, reliable global instrument to assess the impact of accredited CPD activities on clinical practice.
