Professional Development Core Values
- An organization providing health professional development must see improved health of the population as its end goal.
- The end result of the professional development must be improved patient outcomes.
- Health professionals must take action as a part of the professional development.
- The health professional should be in charge of what actions they take and practice improvements they take on.
- The educator must be in charge of defining the program that serves as the vehicle for practice improvement.
- The funding source must support the full range of pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for a broadly defined medical topic with no bias toward individual solutions.
- Where possible, education and training should be delivered via the Internet due to the Internet's inherent low cost of delivery, reproducibility, support for interactivity, support for communication and collaboration, and ability to collect and display data to evaluate benefit.
- All content related to education and training should be made available to the widest possible audience to enable the widest dissemination.
- Supporting revenue should come from value added above and beyond the value of the content.
- The process of building a program should be systematized to ensure the product is consistent and to allow others to build upon the first program.
- Programs should be built upon a coherent model emphasizing a practice gap related to knowledge, competence, performance, or anticipated patient outcomes.
