Continuing professional education  can lead to improved learning outcomes if effective techniques are used. Appropriate and innovative educational techniques are critical because targeted, repetitive interventions can result in better learning outcomes. Settings for updating skills should support relevant and realistic practice and increase efficiency. Media should reflect effective educational techniques and efficiency of instruction. Limited data indicate that effective CPE may have an effect on improving clinical practice behaviours. The research agenda calls for well-constructed evaluations of culturally appropriate combinations of technique, setting, frequency and media, developed for and tested among all levels of health workers in low- and middle-income countries.
