Our Mission

CME Purpose

Antidote exists to improve the care provided to patients by providing high-quality, relevant, and practical continuing medical education. Educational activities are based on identified barriers and practice gaps, and serve to enhance competence and performance in patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice.

Target Audience

Antidote provides continuing education to the primary care team which includes primary care physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners along with relevant sub-specialty physicians and other healthcare professionals. Antidote seeks to provide education across the country, where possible, focusing our efforts on underserved areas and areas of greatest need.

Types of Activities

Antidote uses a variety of formats to conduct its continuing education. Live meeting formats include full-day meetings, half-day live meetings, dinner meetings and teleconferences. Enduring materials include internet activities, online case studies and seminar recordings, webcasts and e-mail.

Content Areas

Antidote utilizes the IOM core competencies as a basis for the content areas of our CME activities. With these core competencies as a foundation, content is developed based on the identified practice gaps of our audience and includes, but not limited to: chronic diseases, infectious diseases, neuropsychiatric conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, and other diseases or conditions generally faced by patients seeking care from primary care professionals; practice management, regulatory compliance as well as topics influencing the care provided to patients.

Expected Results of the Program

Antidote expects that its activities have a positive effect on the care provided to patients by improving the competence and performance of its participants and ultimately patient outcomes. The changes in competence, performance and patient outcomes will be measured using a variety of methods, both subjective and objective.
