Abstract

Continued education of professionals is a major factor for service improvement and evidence-based good practice. This project explores the strategies used for this purpose across countries (CET = continued education and training in the substance abuse field). A structured questionnaire was circulated internationally by an expert committee of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. Reports from 11 countries were collected in 2005. The following review is based on these reports and structured according to the questionnaire (questions in italics). The authors of the reports are listed in the acknowledgements. The countries are Australia, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland, and the United States. As a result of this project, an international think tank on continued education and training was established and is briefly described.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
