Our approach towards CME

The creation of medical ideas is a clever way of both acknowledging and permitting creativity in medicine. One of the logical consequences of expecting a highly educated workforce to follow guidelines and checklists meticulously is a tendency to produce the unreflective and desiccated practice characteristic of those on the factory floor. This could prove deeply unsatisfying for the clinician in the long term.

The bank of medical ideas can capitalize on the creative knowledge emergent at the bedside and link to those who can assist the potential clinician innovator to assess and transform their ideas into practice. From a broader health resource perspective, the public may then start getting maximum return for the funds invested in medical education. This would certainly be a win-win situation for both clinicians and patients.
