Moore's outcomes framework and related papers

Outcomes-based planning for CME (Continuing Medical Education) often cites Donald Moore, Professor of Medical Education at Vanderbilt University. In 2009 he published an outcomes framework for CME (1) - which expanded George Miller's 1990 competency pyramid (2) - followed by a more detailed explanation of the instructional design approach using this outcomes-based planning (3), and a review 10 years on (4).
