An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a 1.5-day public workshop to explore the financial and social return on investment (ROI) for high-value Continuing Professional Development (CPD) across health and education systems. The workshop will look at various formal and informal tools, methods or models for educating the current clinical workforce (e.g., faculty development, preceptor training, workplace learning, and continuing education). These examples will foster relevant discussions on what comprises high-value CPD (e.g., improved efficiency, better quality and safety, and a social ROI), and what makes up the business case that includes costs and who pays for the training. Perspectives from high, middle and low income countries as well as patients and/or patient advocates will further inform a business case assessing the value of high-value CPD calculated as: Value = (Quality + Outcomes) / Cost. 

The committee will develop a workshop agenda, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. Following the workshop, a proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.

This Forum workshop is free and open to the public. Registration is required. The workshop will also be webcast, and all videos of the webcast recordings will be archived on the workshop website.

There are breaks built into the workshop agenda for in-person participants to engage in networking opportunities and informal conversations, and breakout sessions will provide an opportunity for group discussion and sharing. All participants are encouraged to participate in the workshop via twitter using our hashtag, #IHPEGF.
