Session Description
Are your events dry snoozers where attendees are checking their cell phones rather than engaging in the learning? Are you struggling to find any measurable improvement in physician performance or patient outcomes? The answer is get your physicians involved in planning/participating in a truly improvisational activity where they may have the opportunity to practice skills they learn from watching other physician “actors.” At this interactive session, you’ll learn how small CPD departments with shoe string budgets pulled off what all the naysayers said was impossible — get providers to actually enjoy and benefit  from engaging in interactive learning events. Besides being lots of fun, providers found that they were actually able to use the skills right away in their practice. You’ll go home from this interactive session armed with the tools you can use to improve interaction and learning — without a lot of manpower or a big budget.
