The article discusses the effectiveness of large-group sessions in continuing medical education which can be improved by using rigid needs evaluation and increasing interactivity as well as engagement in the process of learning. It states that the other interventions that indicates promise will include communities of practice, distanced-based education, and small-group learning. Moreover, self-directed learning may be improved by self-assessment exercises and additional portfolio-based learning.
