Peds PLACE: quality continuing medical education in Arkansas.

Abstract

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) sponsor Peds PLACE (Pediatric Physician Learning and Collaborative Education), a telemedicine continuing education program. This study assessed to what extent participants were satisfied with Peds PLACE and how to improve it. It was found that 95% of the participants agreed that the presentations related to their professional needs and 98% that it increased their knowledge. In addition, 81% evaluated the presentations as some of the best they have attended and 93% agreed that the information would translate into professional practice and enhance patient care. Comments were positive and correlated with the survey data. Participants recommended several ways to improve Peds PLACE.
