Competence - A gap in the ability to apply knowledge.
Performance - A gap in the actual application of knowledge to practice.
It is the policy of the Rochester Academy of Medicine (RAM) to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all educational activities.
Criteria 12: The provider gathers data or information and conducts a program-based analysis on the degree to which the CME mission of the provider has been met through the conduct of CME activities/educational interventions.
All CME activities must be evaluated to assess the extent to which the program has achieved the change in competence, performance, or patient outcomes. Your method of evaluation will depend upon the PPG you selected.
Examples:Competence - Physician self-report of intended application of new knowledge to their practice.
Performance - Physician self-report on the application of the new knowledge to their practice.
Patient Outcomes - Data, such as re-admittance rates, compared prior to the activity and 6 months later.
Criteria 19:The provider implements educational strategies to remove, overcome or address barriers to physician change.
