From the Editor – Fall 2022

Dear Readers,

Welcome back from the long, hot summer. We apologize for the delay in publishing this Fall issue and will be back to our normal, quarterly schedule this Winter.

Here are some highlights from this issue. We begin the issue with our International CME/CPD Update with a summary report of a unique workshop presented by Helena Filipe and Mila Kostic during the annual AMEE international conference this past September in Lyon. The workshop focused on the value of weaving professional networking, potentially enhanced by technology, and creating structured conversations at the workplace as pathways to develop professional development opportunities and creating value to the organization.

A new column is introduced—Soph Box— by columnist Sophie Soklaridis with an inaugural article on the future role of clinician educators. She asks “What will medicine and health professions education look like in the next 15 years? What skills will we need to keep on top of ever-evolving technology and engage our students?”

In our Tips & Practice Innovations column, Terry Soleas and Helen Mawdsley have provided us with practical examples of how to create meaningful learning objectives by applying the TRACT method discussed in SACME’s new resource—the CE Educator’s Toolkit. You will also want to read E-Learning & Technology. Vjeko Hlede provides an informative comparison of learning management systems (LMS) vs the more advanced learning “experience” systems (LXP) of the future.

Lastly, Dr’s Craig Campbell and Joseph Szot, our new co-editors for our Publications and Scholarship column, have curated a thoughtful list of publications for your own continuing professional development.

And for our readers residing in the U.S., we provide a comprehensive Legislative and Regulatory Update for the Fall session of Congress authored by staff at the Federation of State Medical Societies.

I have saved the most important bit of news for last. I am delighted to announce that Helen Mawdsley, EdD has agreed to serve as Co-Editor in Chief. Please welcome Helen to her new role. Her research expertise and academic background bring an important set of skills to CE News.

Wishing all our readers a happy fall and holiday season ahead.

Best regards,


G. Robert D’Antuono,
MHA, Co-Chief Editor

Letter from the Chief Editor

Dear Readers,

As you may have noticed, you didn’t receive a CE News Spring issue. Instead, you received our 2023 Annual Proceedings Report, filled with plenary session summaries, oral abstracts and poster presentations. If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend the 2023 meeting in Nashville either virtually or live, than we hope you will take a moment to review this report. Presently, the report is available to members and the public to download. In other news, I am delighted to announce two additions to our editorial team. Ginny Jacobs, PhD, a past SACME president and well-known in the CME/CPD community, has agreed to serve as Co-Chief Editor. We are so fortunate to have Ginny join the team and we look forward to her contributions both…
