Changes in health care—including a growing emphasis on quality, outcomes, and lower costs—are transforming the delivery of care and creating a knowledge gap that continuing education must bridge. As clinicians and health leaders spend less time in hospital settings, educational activities are likely to extend their reach, for instance through online education distributed on laptops, tablets, or smartphones. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, MD, PhD, explored this shift in his 2016 keynote to the World Congress for Continuing Professional Development: “Learn to Change: Teaching Toward a Shifting Health Care Horizon.” This article describes some of the main trends in health care that Dr. Emanuel foresees, focusing on the implications of the changing role of hospitals for innovation in continuing education.
