Catch me at Mobile Health Expo NYC
Tuesday June 21, 2011
3:30 - 4:15 pm
New York City
My session is titled, "Mobile Technology in the Continuing Medical Education of Physicians"
Abstract: A physician's continuing professional development is critical to keeping up with advances in medicine and with changes in the delivery of care. As mobile technology becomes an integral part of the clinical workflow process, physicians are becoming more comfortable using mobile devices to learn and to develop professionally. There are currently a wide variety of mobile platforms that offer continuing medical education activities for physicians. We will examine some of the ways that physicians are currently using mobile technology in formal, continuing medical education settings. We will also see how physicians are responding to medical education activities that are developed to educate physicians about the various ways they can use mobile technology to improve patient care. As physicians apply mobile technology in the clinical setting and learn how they can leverage these resources for professional education and development, we will witness a transformation in the way physicians learn and apply evidence-based information at the point of patient care.
