WentzMiller Global Services can provide you with new understanding of global CME/CPD, help you create successful collaborations and help manage your global medical/health education initiatives
WHAT WE DO
WMGS has a history of expertise guiding both small and large organizations – nonprofit and for profit – through a process of identifying competitive advantage in developing continuing medical/health education / continuing professional development opportunities. We have demonstrated success in helping define not just the education case, but the business case, for supporting CME/CPD
IMPROVING COLLABORATION BETWEEN EDUCATION PROVIDERS AND INDUSTRY
Our Principals and Associates have spent many years working with both groups. Principal Lew Miller founded two of today’s organizations in this field. Principal Dennis Wentz established roadmaps for collaboration though the AMA Industry/CME Provider Task Force
UNDERSTANDING AND SUCCESSFULLY MANAGING GLOBAL DIFFERENCES
Substantially different approaches to CME/CPD exist in the U.S., Europe, Asia-Pac, Latin America and MENA. The WMGS network of Associates work collaboratively across borders to assure client success in the selected markets. Understanding clinical but also cultural differences from country to country, and adapting these is a critical part of the process
GAINING CME ACCREDITATION IN AND OUTSIDE THE U.S.
In which countries is CME mandated? Are there functional accreditation systems? How important is CME credit? Are providers or programs accredited? Which types of programs? Who should we work with to obtain accreditation? Is reciprocal credit obtainable? These and many similar questions are regularly handled by WMGS Principals and Associates
FINDING GLOBAL OR REGIONAL PARTNERS
CME programming is more likely to be successful if local organizations are involved in a partnership – organizations that understand physicians and clinical practice in their own countries. WMGS can assist your organization in teaming up with the right partners around the world.
ASSESSING MARKETPLACES AROUND THE WORLD
Global market places change rapidly in terms of CME/CHE products and services. Pharmaceutical support is more available in some countries, less so in others. New approaches to CME are being tried in some countries, less in others. WMGS Associates in Europe, Asia-Pac, Latin America and MENA can help in pinpointing the best opportunities.
CREATING INTEGRATED INTERFACES AT ALL STAGES OF CME AND CHE
The literature on effective continuing medical/health education is growing, and point to certain combinations of efforts that are likely to improve success, based on needs assessment, educational delivery, use of media, measurement of outcomes, and transformation into practice. WMGS has the experience and expertise to guide our clients to maximize the value of their investments.
