Kaiser Permanente Diablo Service Area CME Program Mission Statement
The Kaiser Permanente Diablo Service Area (KPDSA) CME Program Provides medical education programs targeted to TPMG physicians, as well as other clinicians involved in team-based, safety and communication activities when appropriate.
Activity content is based on organizational priorities and demonstrated gaps in physician practice. We employ multi-interventional strategies to deliver a broad range of educational activities that enable and reinforce learning. These include in-person symposia, videoconference broadcasts, webinars, case conferences and other events. Education is provided in partnership with Kaiser Permanente Regional departments, local clinical specialty groups, organizational leadership and other key stakeholders.
We expect our medical education activities to improve physician competence and performance and ultimately impact the health outcomes of and health disparities among Kaiser Permanente members in Northern California. Success is demonstrated by participants’ intent to change their practice and their actual change in practice, reported via post-activity self-evaluations. Relevant clinical and patient care data, when available, also is analyzed to objectively measure practice change. The outcomes are then used to identify future needs, which support the continuous improvement of our educational activities.
