TH6 | Medical CME Item-Writing Workshop: Focus on Medical Direction and Attending Physicians' Skills, Knowledge, and Abilities in PA/LTC

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The workshop will cover principles for writing CME exam questions ("items"), suggestions for writing realistic and practical items at the appropriate cognitive level, and item writing exercises. Experts will have the chance to not only develop items, but receive instant feedback on how well their items match industry standards, allowing them to edit their items and have them accepted at the workshop. Subject matter experts will be provided the opportunity to learn cross-field item-writing principles which will allow them to write valid questions in a variety 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 multiple-choice items to measure knowledge, skills, and abilities.
(2) Use strategies to avoid technical flaws in item-writing and common item-writing pitfalls.
(3) Apply item-writing principles to add to PA/LTC CME question bank.
