Workshop: Friday 22nd January 2021, 1.30pm – 5.30pm

#FUTURISTFORUM: MEDICAL LEARNING IN 2035. WHAT DID WE LEARN ABOUT THE FUTURE WHEN WE CONVENED LEADERS, INFLUENCERS AND VISIONARIES FROM THE INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL LEARNING ECOSYSTEM?

1Celeste Kolanko, 2Dale Kummerle and 3Suzanne Murray
1United Kingdom, 2USA and 3Canada 

Workshop Description:
What will it take to ensure that the international medical education community is ready for the evolution of healthcare? How will it impact the discipline and practice of medicine? How did COVID-19 accelerate the transformation into the future? What will the future of congresses look like? To address these questions, a two-day #FuturistForum was convened by the Global Alliance for Medical Education (GAME, gamecme.org) in October 2019 and subsequent webinars in 2020. GAME is a not-for-profit organisation that facilitates best practices and collaboration in lifelong learning translation into improved healthcare. By bringing together world leaders, influencers and visionary stakeholders, from disciplines including learning sciences, medical and health education, continuing professional development, performance improvement, patient safety and population health - GAME is catalysing an exchange, dialogue and exploration process to bring forward lifelong learning translation in healthcare. High-level outcomes and discussions derived from the #FuturistForum will be used as stimulus to evolve the thinking and inspire potential solutions during the workshop. Participants will participate in small-group discussions and debate; critical reflection and feedback will be key elements of the workshop; mindfulness and meditation practices will be used.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how will learning in medicine will be transformed in 10 - 15 years from now, and

  2. List steps to begin taking immediately in order to prepare for the future.

  3. High-level outcomes and discussions derived from the #FuturistForum will be used as stimulus to evolve the thinking and inspire potential solutions to address the future of medical and health education and learning.

Symposium: Saturday 23rd January 2021, 10.15am – 11.15am

1Celeste Kolanko, 2Dale Kummerle, 3Lisa Sullivan and 4Sherlyn Celone

1United Kingdom, 2USA, 3Australia, and 4USA

Symposium Description:

In this symposium, the faculty will explore a model that develops a strategic approach to developing innovative CME through Digital Learning and Performance Ecosystem within the workplace. Starting from an organisational performance focus, this session pulls together the problems seen and responds to the underlying causes. Throughout the session the faculty and learners will proceed through the strategic components, indicating principles, tools, examples and trade-off of this model.

This will provide a systematic way of viewing the goals of Digital Learning, which can guide in developing strategies that makes sense of and integrates tactics (like asynchronous and synchronous courses, mobile, simulations, portals, micro-learning, social media and more) into an integrated, coherent and comprehensive whole. The need to address these learning tactics and models are have been enhanced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Recognise how increasing the use of digital technologies can enhance the level of engagement of physicians thus changing behaviours to help improve patient care. 

  2. Describe social network concepts and approaches can be used to promote social learning in health care teams both for online and blended learning programmes.

  3. Incorporate continuous planning in an education strategy from understanding the gaps to assessing the impact.

  4. Design blended learning activities that incorporate a mix of live and eLearning activities to optimize learner engagement for providers, staff and patients.

  5. Develop effective outcomes plans to measure change in knowledge, skills, competence, confidence and performance.
