Abstract: Emergency physician (EP) training in the Netherlands is currently a 3-year competency-based programme. Upon its completion, many Dutch EPs feel that they lack some of the skills and the knowledge necessary to be fully prepared for the challenges of emergency medicine. We perceived a need for new methods to deliver continuing professional development (CPD). A needs analysis survey was conducted to ascertain whether our perceived need for a new CPD programme was genuine. A new course was developed, incorporating innovative learning methods. The results of the needs analysis were incorporated into the programme. Another survey was held among participants of the first two editions of the programme. Modular CPD for Emergency Physicians (Dutch: MNSHA) is a modular programme that aims to deliver CPD to Dutch EPs. It combines innovative educational methods, such as asynchronous learning in a flipped classroom, with web-based mentoring. The aim is for participants to develop effective, individualized and sustainable methods to gain and maintain knowledge and skills as a part of their ongoing professional education. The participant survey showed encouraging results, strongly suggesting an improvement in confidence. A more robust study would be required to better assess the outcomes of our programme.
