    Overview: All CPD professionals confront two imperatives:  delivering ever more effective educational interventions and strengthening stakeholders’ understanding of the value of CPD to our institutions and to improving patient care.  Enhancing effectiveness requires better ways of detecting, measuring, and communicating the impacts of CPD interventions.  Enhancing value entails providing key stakeholders with evidence showing the effectiveness of specific educational interventions and, in the academic setting, trading in the currency of the realm (ie, dissemination of our efforts through forums such as refereed journals). 

    Both imperatives require that we give greater attention to research in CPD.  This session present the case for developing increased research capacity in CPD and explore ways in which CPD professionals at all levels can contribute to this end.

    Questions for discussion:

    1. Why should CPD professionals at all levels learn more about educational research?
    2. How can busy CPD professionals find ways to engage in research?
    3. What steps can individual CPD professionals take to further develop their understanding of and ability to conduct educational research?
