The demands of the academic milieu reach far beyond the practice of clinical medicine. Academic physicians assume responsibility for educating the physicians and specialists needed for sustainability of the healthcare system, all while working hard to fulfil their own clinical and scholarly goals. As COVID has underscored, complexities and uncertainties within healthcare challenge the academic setting as being simultaneously a place of learning and a place of work. Coaching as an antidote can function as a partnership to foster resilience, navigate relationships, and support the achievement of personal and professional goals. Coaching within the health professions has picked up "traction" in recent years and yet a lack of clarity as to what it is, the role it can play and how it can be effectively integrated still exists. This 60-minute presentation aims to bring that clarity.

WK:1 Unlocking the Potential of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Enriching Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Sunday, March 10th from 9:00am - 11:00am Pacific Time
Workshop Registration is free for all Annual Conference Registrants
Sofia Valanci, MD, PhD, Ken Masters, PhD, HDE, FDE
Heather MacNeill, MD
In the swiftly evolving landscape of technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing various facets of education and communication. Within the realm of continuing professional development (CPD), AI emerges as a powerful tool for elevating the learning experience. In particular, generative AI, exemplified by accessible tools like ChatGPT, holds the potential to reshape CPD by crafting tailored learning objectives, generating case examples, formulating interactive discussion questions, and creating captivating presentations that seamlessly adapt to specific contexts, specialties, and individual learning preferences. This workshop aims to empower healthcare educators, CPD providers, and professionals with the knowledge and skills to harness AI’s potential for designing impactful learning objectives and delivering engaging presentations. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops to apply their newfound knowledge in real-world situations using AI tools.
WK2: Advancing Inclusion in Continuing Professional Development
Edeline Mitton, MEd, MPH
Branka Agic, MD, PhD
This interactive workshop will explore ways to create and support a culture of mutual respect and inclusivity in the workplace and learning environment and to incorporate IDEA into CPD curricula. A didactic presentation will be followed by interactive group discussion and a case presentation.
WK3: The Basics of Journal Manuscript Review: A Hands-On Workshop for Prospective and Current Reviewers
Jack R. Kues, PhD
This workshop is designed to provide a basic overview of the process that manuscripts undergo once they are submitted to a journal. During the workshop, learners will review a sample manuscript in small groups, giving them the opportunity to apply basic research knowledge to astudy submitted to a journal for publication. The workshop will end with a discussion of how attendees, who are not currently manuscript reviewers, can become reviewers for JCEHP.
WK4: Small Group, Big Impact: Facilitating for Learner Success
Laura Werts, MEd, MS, CMP
Natalie Sanfratello, MPH, CHCP
This workshop, based on the resources in the CE Educator’s Toolkit, will explore the pivotal role of facilitators in creating a supportive learning environment in small group sessions and in making CE sessions learner-driven, engaging, and productive. Participants will learn how to promote collaboration, teamwork, problem-solving, decision-making, and critical thinking skills within the small group setting to achieve shared goals and construct knowledge collectively.

WK6: Panacea or Skynet: Will Technology Improve or Harm Health Equity?
Jerry Maniate, MD, Med, FRCPC, FACP, CCPE, CPC(HC)
David Wiljer, PhD, CPC(HC)
There has been enthusiastic growth in the adoption of technology and even AI as a means of supporting health care delivery and education. But there have also been significant concerns and considerations identified. This includes issues of trust, privacy, bias, and other concerns of equity-seeking communities. To ensure the successful and safe adoption of these technologies to support care and education there is a need to have open and transparent dialogue about parameters and utilization policies to guard and guide their utilization and improve health equity. Experiences using technology and AI across the world are different according to the contexts in which they are applied and can offer interesting insights and lessons learned for a global audience. An introductory panel discussion will be followed by interactive knowledge gathering using small and large group techniques.
WK7: Leveraging Quality Improvement to Expand the CPD Experience
Heather Clemons, MS, MBA, CHCP
This interactive how-to session will teach learners how to get started in quality improvement, including what works, avoiding pitfalls, what data to gather and how to obtain it, getting traction, and developing a plan tailored to their own organizations.
WK8: From Innovating to Writing – A CPD Guide to Publishing Your Work
Doug Archibald, PhD
This workshop will provide clinicians and researchers with the knowledge and tools to successfully evaluate and disseminate an innovation or professional development program. The recent editorial, “Recommendations for Publishing Innovation Reports” in the Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions 43(2): 73-76, Spring 2023. DOI: 10.1097/CEH.0000000000000515, will be used to guide the discussion and activities. A key message of this workshop will be to evaluate the sustainability and longevity of an innovation, with particular attention to using Hamza and Regehr’s Eco-normalization Framework. Exemplary innovations will be presented and discussed with an opportunity for participants to outline evaluation plans for their own innovations or CPD programs. Finally, some tips for disseminating innovations and program evaluations will be shared.
