If the purpose of the program is to provide new medical knowledge, list journal references or other sources of the information. Were the participants (or potential participants) consulted or surveyed? If so, please describe how they were consulted. If this is a recurring activity, explain how evaluations from the last session were used to adjust curriculum. All activities are expected to correspond with our general mission. The purpose of the Wisconsin Medical Society is to advance the science and art of medicine and the health of the people of Wisconsin; ensure that physicians are equipped to deal effectively with the economic and political aspects of practice; and serve as the patient and physician advocate to government and other relevant publics. WISCONSIN MEDICAL SOCIETY COUNCIL ON MEDICAL EDUCATION CME MISSION STATEMENT The CME mission of the Council on Medical Education of the Wisconsin Medical Society is to enhance the medical care provided to the citizens of Wisconsin through two educational mechanisms: 1. Providing surveillance and monitoring of intrastate agencies which offer Continuing Medical Education (CME) to physicians and other health professionals in Wisconsin. 2. Improve patient care and physician effectiveness by providing accredited CME programs. The content will generally be selected from areas in which the Wisconsin Medical Society has special expertise not generally offered by other CME providers. The target audiences for these activities are physicians licensed in the state of Wisconsin. When sponsoring or jointly sponsoring CME programs, the Wisconsin Medical Society Council on Medical Education is guided by the principles of requiring valid needs assessment mechanisms, acceptable objectives, appropriate educational designs, qualified faculties and substantive evaluation mechanisms primarily for physicians practicing in Wisconsin. The educational activities will include conferences, workshops, symposia and other activities as appropriate. We expect to consistently measure participating physicians' satisfaction with our educational offerings with special attention to their perception of the usefulness of the content in changing practice behavior. Please explain needs assessment below. (Attach additional pages as needed.)
  • TARGET AUDIENCE For whom is the activity intended? Please describe the participants, as specifically as possible. (Attach additional pages as needed.) EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES/PURPOSE Upon completion of the activity, what knowledge, skills, and/or attitudes should the participants have acquired? Be as specific as possible. EDUCATIONAL FORMAT How will the knowledge, skills, or attitudes described in the objectives/purpose be transferred to the participants? [lecture, case presentation, problem based learning, computer assisted instruction, small group discussion, etc.] How are presenters (lecturers, etc.) being informed of the education objectives? Please document this interaction. (Attach additional pages as needed.) PLANNING MINUTES Everyone is asked to keep minutes or make notes to illustrate the planning process that took place prior to the activity taking place. Attach a copy of the planning documentation (notes from telephone correspondence or letters related to the planning of the program are appropriate documentation). A copy of the proposed budget, if applicable, should be submitted with this worksheet. (Attach additional pages as needed.)
  • EVALUATION How will the participant’s achievement of the educational objectives be measured? [Post-tests, questionnaires, post-program surveys, etc.] Describe the evaluation process to be used and attach a copy of the evaluation instruments (See sample evaluation questionnaire attached). (Attach additional pages as needed). Note: A summary of the evaluation results and a list of participants must be received in the CME Office within 30 days following the program date(s). VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE STATEMENT The Wisconsin Medical Society has implemented a process where everyone who is in a position to control the content of an education activity has disclosed to us all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. In addition, should it be determined that a conflict of interest exists as a result of a financial relationship a speaker may have, this will need to be resolved prior to the activity. In order to do this, a disclosure statement must be completed and returned to the Society with this application. This information is necessary in order for the Society to be able to move to the next steps in planning this CME activity. If a speaker refuses to disclose relevant financial relationships, he/she will be disqualified from being a part of the planning and implementation of this CME activity. How will speaker disclosures be communicated to the audience? (see attached statement).

  • Glossary of Terms Commercial Interest The Wisconsin Medical Society defines a “commercial interest” as any proprietary entity producing health care goods or services, with the exemption of non-profit or government organizations and non-health care related companies. Financial relationships Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. The Wisconsin Medical Society considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner. Relevant financial relationships The Wisconsin Medical Society focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CME activity. The Wisconsin Medical Society has not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The Wisconsin Medical Society defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest. Conflict of Interest Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
