Why we need continuing education

Today, in the 21st century, things move faster than ever before. Science and technology are improving the way in which we live and work. Almost daily you will hear about a new study or innovation that is taking place. Continuing Educational events plays an important role in ensuring our doctors, teachers and leaders are at the top of their game.

Continuing Educational events will help people go from good to great. We need our professionals to be the best when doing their job that affects us. Doctors play an important role in society which is why the ACCME was formed to oversee and monitor the implementation of Continuing Medical Education (CME) events.

Best practices are how we all improve and sharing with others is something many of us learn as we grow up. In the professional world, this is done by sharing best practices with those in the same field. Teachers can learn from each other on the best ways to get through to students and there are certain methods, such as a flipped classroom, that many teachers are trying. In the medical field nurses and doctors are always improving the care they provide and learning from it. It helps all of us when people in the medical profession have the best knowledge available.

There are over 5,000 CME events each month across the world and even more conferences that help those not in the medical field. We all need to be lifelong learners so we can be and stay at the forefront of whatever it is we choose to be good at.
