The key to success is to target the right educational content and instructional design (ID) to the right learners, at the right time and in the right way. Work with the Full Circle CE team to develop content that addresses your learners’ current needs and readiness to learn.
Instructional Design for Practice Change
Choose the Full Circle CE team to work with your subject matter experts to develop content and instructional design that is tailored for clinicians in specific stages of education, care settings, and scopes of practice. If you are considering developing interprofessional education (IPE), work with Full Circle CE to ensure the more innovative uses of methods and platforms required to reach all members of the clinical team. Education designed to address gaps of clinicians who work together in one setting that helps them work better as a team and specifically considers each team member’s unique scope of practice.
The United States government is investing in helping care sites develop innovative administrative structures to improve the continuity of patient care, steward patient health data and outcomes information, develop career ladders for ancillary clinicians to improve, and connect clinicians through the patient-centered medical home model. All of these efforts point to an interconnected system of care with layered services in local environments … and this means that the clinical professionals working in local settings will need education that makes sense in the interprofessional team.
Collaborative IPE development gives voice to recommendations of expert clinicians in different scopes of practice, practice administrators, implementation scientists, and educators, to name a few. Using different platforms wisely, such as those that facilitate the flipped classroom model, can help clinical teams develop practice patterns and master administrative supports that are not available in typical continuing education but are necessary to quality improvement education (QIE) initiatives. We will help you put the entire educational program together.
To choose the right ID and educational content, you need to understand your target learner population. Expert outcomes-planning and analysis from effect size to contextual interpretation tells you what happened in the current initiative and what to address in the future. How you plan tests and surveys to figure out who they are is the first big step toward knowing who your learners are.
Full Circle CE combines live and online formats and their content to address documented practice gaps, and enlivens any format with well-tested questioning and teaching methods. Serial education first predisposes practicing clinicians to learn, and later reinforces skills and messages that take time to translate to routine practice. Everything that we do in content development and instructional design translates to writing up of methodologies for proposals, outcomes reports, and research.
We help faculty enliven any format with well-tested questioning and teaching methods, such as case vignettes, branching simulations, standardized patients, and patient feedback, as well as testing and surveying to motivate readiness to learn and motivation.

Content that suits learners also fits the instructional platform, using it to best advantage. This is why our educational content has proven effectiveness when comparing different formats for teaching to different levels and goals. Specific reasons for choosing certain platforms aren’t obvious just for outcomes research and learning purposes: our evidence-based rationales explain to our clients’ customers how their platforms are unique, contrast with other options in the marketplace, and fit into the context of clinical education for the targeted learner segment.
In these days of educating patients in programs that are designed to simultaneously change how clinicians provide care, deftly choosing from a diversity of platforms and educational formats is essential to integrating all of the components for all of these learner groups. And for the methods section of both the proposal and the eventual outcomes report, you need an instructional designer who can explain the reasons for combining these platforms according to the research goals and questions that we seek to address.
Full Circle CE creates instructional design (ID) that helps subject matter experts convey their insights at the right time and in the right way. Engage the Full Circle CE team to help subject matter experts share their insights in formats that change knowledge and competence.
Help learners improve their quality of care by stimulating them to rethink how they work with their patients. Instructional Design promotes practice change when it makes learners think about how they work with their patients.
