    Achieving Level 7 Outcomes: A MEC Perspective
    This session will discuss the results of an award-winning educational initiative demonstrating outcomes at Moore’s level 7. Developed via collaboration between two medical education companies and a coalition of diverse educational partners, this initiative demonstrates how an innovative blend of professional and patient education (certified and noncertified) can lead to better clinical performance, improved patient health, and reduced health care costs. It also will address the initiative history, activity design, audience generation methods, and results of this long-term educational intervention.

    Upon surveying the NAMEC member base, the NAMEC Communications Committee, along with the help from your survey results, have decided to move the release date of Flashpoint News to once a month. For the past two years, we have been sending out Flashpoint News twice a month, every other Wednesday, with large dedication from the Communications team. With the results and insightful comments from our members, we will now be releasing Flashpoint once a month. To see the survey results, click here. You will see a majority of 72% would like to view the newsletter monthly, as opposed to bi-monthly. We will also heavily rely on our Twitter account as well as LinkedIn page for other communications. Please contact us with any questions or concerns related to NAMEC Communications.

    NAMEC is more than excited for our meeting on Sunday, January 22, 2012 at the JW Marriott in Orlando, FL. The NAMEC Program Committee has been working hard to put together a good Panel, and we have added some segments to the meeting that are innovational and engaging. You will NOT want to miss this meeting! And here's 4 reason's why....

    1. We will open this years meeting with a mix and mingle "wine-down", offering a complimentary first beverage to all who attend. Light appetizers will also be served, as we all know, it will have been a long day of sessions and we deserve it!

    2. After we all get comfortable in our seats, the 6th Annual Best Practices Awards Ceremony will begin. We will announce the winners in Best Practice Educational Design & Evaluation, Best Practice in Collaboration Among CME Stakeholders, Best Practice in Professional Development, and the highly acclaimed and respected Brian P. Russell Exemplary CME Professional Award. This year we will be blessed with the presence of Brian P. Russell's parents themselves who will be there to distribute the award. 

    3. Directly after the Ceremony and pictures, the NAMEC Educational Session will begin with an esteemed panel on some hard-hitting topics. As usual, there will be time for Q&A from the audience. 

    4. But don't fade out just yet! Before we close the meeting we will hold two drawing for our Raffle of the Kindle Fire - Full Color 7" Multi-Touch Display with Wi-Fi (ooh's and ahh's inserted here) & a NOOK Simple Touch, the same great product won by 2 lucky members last year! If you're wanting the Kindle Fire as bad as I am, we have a way for you to DOUBLE your chances to win it! Simply bring with you a guest who is currently NOT a NAMEC Member, but is considering joining. By recruiting a potential member and bringing them along with you, your name will be added TWICE to the drawing for the Kindle Fire!

    As you can see, this year's meeting is exceeding the limits of previous NAMEC Meetings. With the presence of Jean and Paul Russell alone, the meeting holds a new meaning for us all. We really hope you can attend.
