TH6 | Medical CME Question-Writing Workshop: Focus on Medical Direction and Attending Physicians' Skills, Knowledge, and Abilities in PA/LTC
The workshop will cover principles for writing CME questions, suggestions for writing realistic and practical questions at the appropriate cognitive level, and question writing exercises. Experts will have the chance to not only develop questions, but receive instant feedback on how well their questions match industry standards, allowing them to edit their questions and have them accepted at the workshop. The workshop will allow subject matter experts the opportunity to learn cross-field question-writing principles which will allow them to write valid questions in a multitude of professional and educational settings.

This workshop requires pre-registration to participate. If you are interested in attending or would like more information about this opportunity, please contact Suzanne Harris, Director of American Board of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (ABPLM), at cmd@paltc.org by March 21, 2018. Participants will need to bring a laptop to participate in the workshop.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Construct MCQs that can measure knowledge, recall, application and analysis.
(2) Use strategies to avoid technical flaws in question-writing and common question-writing pitfalls.
(3) Apply question-writing principles to add to PA/LTC CME question bank.

This session will focus on the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of improving the quality of care and life for PA/LTC residents. It will feature presentations by the Foundation's 2017 Quality Improvement Award winner on the "Quality of Dementia End-of-Life (EOL) Care in Nursing Homes using Quality Data Collection Tool for Palliative Care (QDACT-PC) Registry," as well as presentation from the winners of the 2018 QI & Health Outcome (QIHO) Award. These awards are centered on programs that facilities have successfully implemented to improve the quality of life for their residents. These presentations will form the basis for discussion by Robert Kaplan, MD, CMD, Thomas Caprio, MD, CMD, and Dulce Maria Cruz Oliver, MD.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Appreciate the diversity and impact of quality improvement and quality of life projects in the PA/LTC setting.
(2) Describe the difference in project design and implementation of quality of care and quality of life projects.
