Today satellite television is readily available to many hospitals, where it can prove an efficient means of delivering continuing medical education (CME)—particularly in rural areas. Since there is little research in CME on the effectiveness of videoconferencing, this paper was written to describe a case study focusing on that issue. An interactive videoconference on breast cancer was presented to health care professionals in their community hospital settings. Results of a test given before and after the broadcast indicated a 21 percent increase in knowledge among participants.
