New trends in continuing education for care professionals


The Tutor issue's aim is dedicated to the world of permanent training for professionals in health care. In this call, we want to identify good practices and new trends in a strategic training tool to guarantee care
quality from an educational and didactic point of view.
All Italian health care staff (around one million people) have to improve their competencies: clinical, technical and managerial skills to guarantee the best possible care for all citizens. The Continuing Medical Education (CME) system was introduced in 1992 and has been active in all regions since 2001.

Another purpose of the issue is to offer an overview of the experience from beyond national confines to
identify the new orientations and the best international practices.
Furthermore, we want to gather information on the experiences and researches dedicated to the
significant phases of training and planning in the field of Continuing Medical Education, such as:

• Analysis of education needs;
• Training various planning models;
• Understanding and evaluating specific training methods and didactic technologies in the field of health
• Evaluating the system to determine the learning outcomes of participants in the field of health care;
• Assessing the impact on the organizations and the health of citizens;
• Understanding the role of the patient in Continuing Education;
• Ongoing education during the time of COVID-19.
