CME Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

Objectives keep an activity focused, communicate the purpose of the activity, and for the bases of your evaluations.

A good objective answers the question: “What is something measurable that participants be able to do because of their participation in this activity?”

CME objectives must reach a level of change in competency, or above, as described by Dr. Moore. See Tools and Resources below for additional information.
