US Institute of Medicine consensus report 4 December 2009
Redesigning Continuing Education in the Health Professions

“A workforce of knowledgeable health professionals is critical to the discovery and application of health care practices to prevent disease and promote wellbeing. Yet today’s professional health workforce is not consistently prepared to provide high quality health care and assure patient safety. One contributing factor to this problem is the absence of a comprehensive and well-integrated system of continuing education in the health professions.

At the request of the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation, the IOM convened a committee to consider the establishment of a national interprofessional continuing education institute dedicated to the improvement of continuing education for the health care workforce. The committee’s report, Redesigning Continuing Education in the Health Professions, examines continuing education for all health professionals, explores development of a national continuing education institute, and offers guidance on the establishment and operation of an institute to develop a coordinated continuing professional development system.”
