Session Description
Teams work better together. Educational providers accredited within the ACCME system, including both CME providers and institutions that have received Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education are strategically positioned to lead efforts to nurture and strengthen effective healthcare teams. This interactive session will explore the best-practice approaches of ACCME's Menu of Criteria for Accreditation with Commendation as they can inform the transformative role of continuing education as an essential resource for team learning and improvement. ACCME staff will share simple approaches that all organizations can use to assess the 'gap' between current practice and optimal practice of teams, and consider a number of approaches that educators can employ to close these gaps. The discussion will include the value of interprofessional continuing education, faculty development, patient/public engagement, and engagement of health professions students as key stakeholders in innovative and effective learning. Supported by discussion with peers, attendees will articulate strategies together for making a leadership case for building an educational home that attends to the needs of effective teams.
