About Us

  • Our Approach: Continuing Health Professional Development

    Our vision for continuing health professional development (CHPD) is to provide unbiased clinical training that improves competency and has an actual impact. Through the use of case vignettes, health professionals are trained and guided to use the training to take action in their practice toward changes and improvement that lead to improved patient outcomes. The program is developed entirely without industry funding; we include the full range of pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for a broadly defined medical topic with no bias toward individual solutions. Our CHPD programs are built upon a coherent model emphasizing a practice gap related to knowledge, competence, performance, or anticipated patient outcomes. Skills training is emphasized over knowledge, although knowledge is provided where it is needed to support training to address documented practice gaps.
