A Needs Assessment (NA) is a document that demonstrates the need for instruction on a particular topic among physicians and other healthcare professionals. Moreover, a well-written Needs Assessment can serve as the foundation for one or more educational interventions, including instructional content and outcomes measurement.
However, there is currently a substantial gap in the Needs Assessment field because there is no standard template or practice guideline. This presentation – The Art of Developing CME Needs Assessments – will help reduce this gap and enable writers to develop more effective Needs Assessments.
