Continuing Medical Education Mission Statement

Our purpose is to promote lifelong learning through educational opportunities that support the values of the Piedmont Healthcare Corporation to improve patient care and outcomes through:

  • Developing single profession and interprofessional educational activities focused on quality and patient safety that will maintain and increase the skills, strategies, and performance of the members of the healthcare team within their scope of practice.
  • Engaging in planning processes for educational activities that fosters teamwork, connections, and professional excellence.
  • Supporting staff in fulfilling state licensing and other requirements for continuing professional education and enhancing professional practice.
  • Embracing the future through the use of technology to share content throughout the system.

We seek to serve our target audiences which include advanced practice nurses, nurses, PAs, pharmacists, physicians, social workers, and other members of the healthcare team by providing continuing education activities including live events (conferences, courses, regularly scheduled series), enduring materials, and other learning opportunities with content that addresses the identified needs of the healthcare team.

Expected results include improvements in the skills, strategies, and performance of our target audience, improved communication between team members as well as excellent patient outcomes. Through regular assessment of individual activities and ongoing evaluation of our overall program, we will determine our effectiveness in creating changes in the skills, strategy and performance of the healthcare team in improving patient outcomes as well as identifying areas for program improvement. These assessments include analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data which will help to drive program improvement and the quality of our educational activities.
