Summary: The meeting will take place 7-9 November 2018, at The King’s Fund – “the think-tank of the NHS” in central London, UK.

Early Bird registration ends 6 September 2018.

Description: #11ECF will be presented with a blend of plenary sessions, panel discussions and workshops. The meeting this year will follow three overall themes:

CHANGE: Techniques and practicalities to promote change – educational design, planning, outcomes evaluation and incorporating education in the professional setting

MANAGEMENT: Management of requirements and meeting the needs of related groups to the CME process – patients, learners, accreditors, industry, government, regulators, etc.

ENGINE: Tools and Engines. Putting new and innovative ideas and techniques into practice.

The topic this year is:

CME — a Change Management Engine.

Whether we describe what we do as continuing medical education or continuing professional development — there is a common objective in developing tools and techniques for managing change to address identified gaps or shortfalls — whether clinical practice or knowledge, competence or actual performance. We are working hard to identify the most relevant topics and faculty to achieve this. The survey results we are receiving are important in helping us to develop the direction should take. Initial feedback is confirming a clear focus on how to develop good quality education and how we can determine whether it is effective.
