Our goal as a provider of outstanding continuing medical education is to influence positive changes in professionals’ competence that lead to improved practice and elevated quality of patient care. To ensure our CME programs’ continued success and contribution to quality patient care, post-program evaluations ask learners to indicate how certain they are to incorporate what they’ve learned from our activities into their practice. We also ask what additional programming Hospital for Special Surgery might provide to meet professional practice gaps and overcome barriers to change. These evaluations are analyzed on a regular basis and used to validate or improve HSS eAcademy content over time.
