Planning What is Planning? –the act or process of making a plan or plans; a formal program for specified benefits, needs Evaluation Competence Performance Disclosure Gap Scope of practice Knowledge Commercial support
Planning A planning session is required for a CME activity and is part of the needs assessment process and helps provide evidence of educational intent. The planning session also provides an opportunity to establish the linkage between needs, objectives, instructional design, and results/outcomes.
Planning Should include: date and time of meeting All in attendance recorded; collect signed disclosures for all planners Describe process by which needs data are used to determine the curriculum for the activity –How needs were gathered –Selection of topics, speakers and method of delivering the educational activity –Do you think this activity fit your learner’s scope of practice? –How will change be measured
CME Process Involvement
ACCME Updated Criteria
ACGME/ABMS General Competencies

CME Application Question 2 What are the professional practice gaps/needs of the target audience that will be addressed? Sample Answer Describe the medical and/or educational reason for the activities.
Example 1 The need for this activity is a result of insufficient treatment plan for psychiatry patients.
Statement of Need/Gap The professional practice gap is the overall need for the educational activity that relates to the target audience and derived from the Needs Assessment Educational needs provide the reason for offering CME activities. They may imply a deficit in knowledge, skills, attitudes and/or behavior among prospective participants
CME Application Question 3 Is it a gap in physician knowledge, competence, or performance? Sample Answer Knowledge –Facts and information acquired by a person through experience or education. Competence –Having the ability to apply knowledge, skills, or judgment in practice if called upon to do so. Performance –What a physician actually does in practice.
Example 2 –The need for this activity is ineligible and insufficient treatment plan for psychiatry patients. –The planners identified a competence need. A strategy to write better treatment plans which also address the ACGME interpersonal and communication skills competency Need/Gap identified
CME Application Question 4 Based on the need/gap the activity is addressing, what is the activity designed to change? Sample answer –You can say to improve: Competence, Performance or Patient outcomes –To affirm knowledge or improve knowledge
Application Question 5 How were those needs/gaps identified by your department? –literature, survey, evaluation summary, national guidelines, chart audits, department discussions, Quality Improvement data, federal or state guidelines, or other
Needs Assessment Data FORWARD or ATTACH supporting documentation
Example 3 The need for this activity is ineligible and insufficient treatment plan for psychiatry patients. The need was derived from chart audits of patient seen within the last 2 years. Need/Gap identified

Objectives All activities require objectives For open discussion-based activities (i.e. M&M, Case conference) objectives for the year are adequate For lecture-based activities (i.e. Grand Rounds) objectives for the year are required as part of the application and then a minimum of a single objective per lecture is also required
Sample Answer After attending this activity, participant will be able to: to improve skill of staff in writing better and clearer treatment plan; or In a simulation of ventricular fibrillation, participant will be able to demonstrate appropriate ACLS protocol until the mannequin shows a normal cardiac rhythm
Sample Global grand rounds objectives can be stated as: –Participant will be motivated to change practice to improve patient care –Participant will have new skills that can be put into practice –Participant will be better informed about current research on ( dept discipline) issues
