Healthcare professionals in Florida have been called upon to participate in a massive effort to respond to the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak. To recognize the significant active learning, peer consultation, and teamwork that has taken place as a result of these clinical activities, FMA and its accredited CME providers have collaborated to create a self-directed CME process. The primary objective is to guide clinicians to record what they are having to learn independently in order to support and improve their clinical practice and respond more effectively to the COVID-19 crisis and claim CME credit. The CME system recognizes this type of learning as legitimate provided CME providers can support their learners in documenting a valid, structured and self-directed learning process at the point of care. This type of blended educational activity is categorized under the Other Format as designated by the American Medical Association.
Needs Assessment/Professional Practice Gap
The rapid emergence of a novel coronavirus has created many clinical questions, some of which still have yet to be adequately answered and addressed. Healthcare professionals and the organizations they represent are working together to better understand this emerging virus, prepare their organizations, and determine best practices for detection, testing, management, and communication with patients.
