This was a small study comparing outcomes of diabetic patients whose clinician attended a CME event to outcomes of diabetic patients whose clinician did not attend the CME event.
DARTNet enrolled 5-10 clinicians who attended a CME program to participate in an evaluation. The aim was to learn if participation in the course contributed to a clinician deciding to make any changes in diabetes care. Participants engaged in a brief interview within three weeks after the course to discuss their reactions and any planned changes. DARTNet researchers then pulled de-identified data from the medical records six months following the course to evaluate whether the clinicians made any changes as a result of their participation in the course.
