Session Description
The ultimate goal of continuing healthcare education is to improve the health and lives of patients. CEhp programs are under increasing pressure to demonstrate their value as a strategic resource by demonstrating that their efforts are producing positive changes in patient outcomes, patient safety, clinical quality, and operational and financial efficiency. And, continuous improvement of our CEHP enterprise requires an analysis of our efforts to see if they are producing positive results. However, many CEHP professionals do not have training or a working understanding of the research methods that can be used to demonstrate the value of their educational work, and few have even a rudimentary understanding of data analysis and statistics. This course is intended to help close those gaps.

Introduction to CEhp Outcomes Research: Defining Improvements in Patient Care will provide a fundamental understanding of how to conduct a research investigation from beginning to end, so that CEhp professionals can begin to measure the clinical outcomes that are affected by their educational program. We will take the learners through the entire process of doing an investigation, from idea conception and hypothesis generation to analyzing and presenting the results. All of the concepts will be presented in such a way that a beginner can easily grasp the material, but with enough detail that the information will be usable later.

Topics will include:

1. Identifying the need and formulating the research question
2. Building an interdisciplinary team of collaborators

3. Identifying the right outcomes to measure

4. Tracking and measuring the relevant outcomes

5. Organizing and analyzing data using basic statistics

6. Interpreting the results

7. Putting the results into perspective

The course will be built around a real case example involving opioid prescribing practices. Participants will follow the project through from start to finish. Each section of the course will include the basic background necessary to understand the topic, and will expand on the information through the example project in a way that helps participants easily grasp the knowledge and use it later.

Following course completion, participants will have a framework from which to begin to design and execute their own investigations into the effectiveness of their CEhp programs. Utilizing tools learned from the course and with the syllabus as a guide, participants will be able to demonstrate how educational activities are interconnected within their healthcare systems to produce measureable outcomes.
