Programs and concepts

AOTrauma is renowned for its highest-quality education, always staying on top of new developments in education.

How we aim to impact community health

Measuring outcomes is a critical component of Continuing Medical Education (CME) and all professional development. AOTrauma has adopted the seven-level outcome measurement model first introduced by Don Moore in 2003 to steer its educational developments. Traditionally, CME has primarily focused on learning (Level III), and occasionally on competence (Level IV). AOTrauma strives to achieve an impact on community health (Level VII), using backward planning - meaning that we start identifying the goals and then proceed backwards - for all our teaching and learning resources. By understanding and targeting specific outcome levels, we can plan and deliver the best teaching and learning resources to our community.

Our approach to education

Hospital-based education

For selected topics, AOTrauma has developed training modules and seminars for in-house education, with predefined content and support resources.
