How Does the OPTI Choose the Topics for the Professional Development Sessions?

Results from a formal needs assessment survey done every other year with the members provides a list of topics for us to choose from as well as feedback provided from the evaluations of previous workshops and conferences provides information for the planning of future Resident Education Day curricula.  Also timely medical issues effecting healthcare identified by state and national medical organizations are considered for inclusion.  We strive to identify topics in which the information we provide information can be used immediately upon returning to patient care. So it is important when completing evaluations that you provide a list of topics that you would like to learn more about in future meetings.
