ICI Education & Training Mission Statement

 

The ICI Preceptorship Program Mission is to measurably contribute to cancer patients’ safety and health outcomes and to support practice improvement by providing CME/CPD activities that enhance the ability of physicians and other healthcare team members to deliver quality and optimal healthcare services.

 

Purpose

The purpose of the ICI Preceptorship Program is to develop educational activities that clearly link the needs of the learner/participants with the planning process, format, and delivery of each activity, resulting in high-quality continuing medical education/continued Professional Development opportunities that will increase the knowledge, competence, and performance of health-care providers.

 

Content Areas

 

The ICI Preceptorship Program activities include practical, evidence-based, best clinical practice information for a broad variety of common oncology and hematology conditions, innovations in primary and specialty patient care in NCDs, new procedural training, and specialty fora. The appropriate content for each course is determined based on the results of a practice gap analysis relative to the target audience’s scope of practice, as well as the identified expected outcomes. Content is free of commercial bias.

 

General Target Audience: ICI Preceptorship/CME/CPD activities focus on the needs of generalist and specialist physicians and other multidisciplinary healthcare team members at ICI-affiliated cancer centers nationally and in sub-Saharan Africa as appropriate.

 

Type of Activities Provided by ICI

 

In order to accomplish our educational goals, ICI CME uses a range of activity formats based on the content and desired results of the activity. Current offerings include live and video conferenced activities, live regularly scheduled series, internet CME activities, enduring materials, and hands-on skills workshops. ICI also jointly sponsors activities with regional specialty societies, non-profit educational organizations, and government agencies when mutually desired goals and outcomes are best achieved by such relationships.

 

Expected Results of the Preceptorship Program

 

ICI Preceptorship/CME/CPD is committed to assessing the impact and effectiveness of its CME/CPD Program. ICI courses are designed to: increase knowledge of new treatments, diagnostic tools, and procedures; improve compliance with the specific evidence-based standard of care protocols; improve competence, performance, and/or patient outcomes; and promote efficient use of resources. We employ assessment methods to evaluate the extent to which our activities result in changes in knowledge, competence, and performance. CME activities in conjunction with quality improvement projects have measurable outcomes to report. An emphasis during the planning process is placed on intended learning and desired change in knowledge, competence, and performance. The ICI Education and Training Office works in collaboration with other departments/offices of the International Cancer Institute and its partners who are involved and interested in quality improvement processes and patient safety.

 

Target Audience

 

The primary target audience for this course comprises the multidisciplinary clinical cancer care team members including, but not limited to medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists; urologists; other health care professionals (internists, primary care physicians, pathologists, physicians-in-training, urology nurses, oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners) involved and/or interested in the therapeutic management of patients with prostate cancer.
