b) Best-practice CME includes an outcomes orientation that connects learning and performance objectives from the needs assessment to the outcomes assessment in a valid framework to support content in all educational activities [3-6]
c) A public health focus can lead to development of CME/CEhp activities with a translational or implementation science function that transcends what can happen when education addresses only a practice gap 
d) Standards and competencies for CEhp and members of the CEhp profession help initiatives meet the principles and characteristics of the IOM report’s expectations [8,9,11]
