This is could potentially be the most valuable addition to continuing medical education because of the accountability factor. It could replace our current (to be honest, cumbersome) credit-tracking system and place the onus on the physician learner to be accountable for their own learning (sadly, not always the case). The governing Colleges (eg. the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada) are trying to shift the perspective of credits being perceived by physicians as “required” to a natural enhancement to a physicians’ practice. There is always the danger of moving into big brother territory when proof of participation is necessary, but for the motivated learner blockchains could present a logical way to monitor their self-guided learning as their practice evolves.
