As the year comes to an end, we are reminded to slow down and appreciate our family, friends, and all that we have accomplished over the last several months.
Here at CPD, 2020 started off with several successful programs and conferences such as the Cardiovascular-Diabetes Symposium and Update in Emergency Medicine, to name a few. Faculty and staff colleagues also attended the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME) in Miami, Florida, holding a strong representation of CPD in both the peer-reviewed academic workshops as well as oral and poster presentations.
In March, the entire world was taken by surprise with the COVID-19 pandemic. The launch of the COVID-19 Resource Library—a hub for clinical resources—was swiftly created in the early weeks of the pandemic. This tool assisted health care professionals in acquiring various credible sources in learning new skills, adapting to the situation at hand, and with coping mechanisms during this difficult time.
To adapt to the physical distancing measures, CPD transitioned from in-person events to an online learning environment with all programs and conferences being offered on a digital platform. This allowed us to extend our reach to an international audience while safely connecting with learners. CPD continues to offer interactive and engaging online programming going into the new year helping our learners stay up to date and learn new skills in their areas of practice.
As we move into the holiday season and the new year, we look forward to the endless possibilities of digital learning that will be experienced in the years to come.
From everyone at CPD, we wish you and your loved ones a peaceful holiday season and health and happiness for the new year.
