“From Micro to Macro – Systems based CPD”

CPD is one kind of activity that enables health professionals to learn and change. CPD planners need to be aware of other relevant frameworks that can improve health professional performance and learning and patient outcomes including quality improvement, patient safety and knowledge translation. During this webinar, a framework for thinking about the complex matrix that influences physician learning and performance will be presented. The integration of QI and CPD will be emphasized with practical examples. Audience participation will be encouraged.
