Evaluation of a continuing education program in rheumatoid arthritis

, : Evaluation of a continuing education program in rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis & Rheumatism 23(7): 846-849

A continuing medical education (CME) program in rheumatoid arthritis was implemented and evaluated in 6 community hospitals. It was targeted at primary care physicians, and it utilized physicians identified by their peers as being educationally influential for the dissemination of content knowledge. Although inpatient and outpatient audits of physician records demonstrated little change in 3 control communities, substantial improvement in the utilization of diagnostic procedures and patient management was documented in the 3 intervention communities utilizing the influential physicians. CME delivered through community-based educationally influential physicians is an effective way to change physician behavior in small communities with no prior ongoing educational programs. This approach should improve the primary care given to patients with rheumatoid arthritis and should reduce the need for participation of academic faculty in traditional CME programs.
