Can you provide me with some solid examples of the type of data that would be acceptable in meeting Criterion 12, "The provider gathers data or information and conducts a program-based analysis on the degree to which the CME mission of the provider has been met through the conduct of CME activities/educational interventions."

Let us say a CME provider set its mission so that the expected result of its program of CME was to change competence and was, "To enable learners to develop strategies for the identification of patients with drug addiction."

Examples of a sample of the type of data that would be acceptable in meeting Criterion 12 would be:

"When we started, none of our learners could ask the right screening questions, did ask the right screening questions, or identified a patient with drug dependence in their practice." 

"When we finished, all learners knew the right screening questions (competence), 50% asked the right questions (performance), and only those that asked the right questions actually identified patients with drug dependence in their practice (patient outcome)."

"Our analysis reveals that we are partially successful in achieving our expected results. Although only one-half of our learners 'asked the right questions' (performance) all of them had the correct strategy (competence)."

You voted 'yes'.
