Infusing Evidence into CE Course Content: Participant Evaluation

Providers of continuing education should continuously evaluate all parts of the course planning and delivery process. Having course participants' evaluate events is one way to determine whether course presenters or developers infused evidence into the course content and discussed that evidence during the course. Below are sample participant evaluation questions course providers might add to participant evaluation forms. No permission is needed to use or modify the questions.
