Special Collection: Call for papers

Updated: Jun 16

Outcomes in CME-CPD

Guest Editor: Don Moore, Professor of Medical Education and Administration Vanderbilt University School of Medicine; Director, Continuing Professional Development Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Aims and Scope

We are delighted to announce that JECME will be publishing a special collection which focuses on how outcomes are measured in CME-CPD. Article submissions are invited until 7 September 2020. The special collection will be published on 30 October to culminate with a session reviewing the publications at the 13th European CME Forum, going virtual this year 4-6 November 2020. All authors who submit to the issue will have the benefit of having the APCs waived.

Authors are invited to submit a Short Communication article (<2,500 words) detailing how they measured outcomes in a CME-CPD activity designed for healthcare professionals.

While there is no set structure required of Short Communication articles, the article should be concise and focus on how outcomes were measured and the rationale for the methods used. Authors should include the pertinent aspects of the design and delivery of the activity. The journal will also consider articles relating to undergraduate and postgraduate education if the content is applicable to CME-CPD.

Article submissions are invited until 7 September 2020 Publication date: 30 October 2020
