Global Research Projects: Fall 2016
Global is proud of our dedicated research team that explore gaps and unmet needs for CME stakeholders, including funding organizations, medical education providers, healthcare organizations, and patients. Our research and analysis collects valuable data and provides our insight and analysis on topics such as HCP and funder perspectives on CME, accreditation board annual reports, and funding trends at pharmaceutical and medical device companies. We are pleased to announce that two new Global research projects are currently underway, and we’ll also be presenting results of a recently completed project on an ACEhp webinar.
- CME Value Survey Phase IV: Global’s CME Value Survey launched in 2012 and over the past few years has produced notable results in varying areas of healthcare provider’s perspectives on the value of CME. The fourth phase of the survey focuses on preference and effectiveness of CME/CE activity formats, CME’s importance in practice behaviors and patient care, influence of CME on value-based care incorporation into practice and barriers to care of patients.
- 2015-2016 Grant Approval and Profitability Scale: The Grant Approval and Profitability Scale was originally produced in 2014 to provide a detailed analysis of grant budget benchmarks for live and enduring activities that took place within the past year to determine the low, high, and average costs of over 10 key budget line items in approved grant submissions. In doing so we are able to deliver valuable insights and analysis to our education partners that help improve the overall success rate of their grant submissions.
Follow this link to schedule a presentation to learn more about the results and our analysis. We expect the results from our fourth phase of CME value surveys to be available later this fall.
This year, Global expanded its analysis of approved grant budgets by breaking down the live and enduring format types that we analyzed. The updated scale breaks down budgets at live satellites, conferences, live series meetings, and hospital grand rounds, as well as enduring web activities, web series, printed materials, and spinoffs from live satellite events. Additionally, we’ve calculated the management fees as a percentage of the total approved budget, as well as the total cost per learner across all of the analyzed activities.
Request the 2013-2014 Grant Approval and Profitability Scale, and stay tuned for the 2016 report which will be coming out this fall.
Amanda Glazar, along with Audrie Tornow from Paradigm Medical Communications, will present an ACEhp webinar on October 12th at 12 PM EST to discuss the results from a survey on changes of scope for commercially supported CME/CE activities. A 13-question survey was sent to grant managers at pharmaceutical and device companies while a 7-question survey was sent to the educational providers of CME/CE activities to gather feedback on the change of scope process. The webinar will examine and discuss the results of the data, while providing valuable information for CME stakeholders to effectively communicate and manage changes of scope for CME/CE activities.
