In accordance with ACCME Planning Policies, please identify the following in relation to your presentation topic(s):

Best Practice - A best practice may be from a national guideline or consensus statement from a credible organization, from peer-reviewed medical literature where more than one source agree on the practice, or from the considered opinion of the expert-planner in the case when no published guideline exists. This becomes the end-goal for your presentation(s).

Current Practice - You can determine this based on interviews (formal or informal) with members of the target audience, a questionnaire, or a published article that reports on findings from learners. THE KEY IS TO GO BEYOND EXPERT PERCEPTION OF THE GAP AND TO INCLUDE THE PERCEPTION OF THE LEARNER.

Gap - This resulting gap is based on the difference between best practice and current practice. Indicate the type of gap (please check all that apply):
Learners lacked knowledge (K)
Learners lacked competence (C)
Learners couldn't implement in practice or performance (P)

Objectives - The FNS Education Committee has provided you with basic objectives for the topic(s) that you will be presenting. As an expert in the field however, please expand upon the provided objectives by completing this form. Objectives should include a verb that is chosen to describe something a physician will do in practice (and not what the teacher will teach). For example, do not use verbs such as "discuss" or "describe, learn or understand." Use words such as "apply, develop a strategy to..., etc." Ensure that the objective clearly states a standard against which one can judge the success in achieving the objective. You must provide objectives for each talk.
