Target Audience

The target audience is the specific group of specialists and/or family physicians, along with other healthcare professionals for whom the CPD activity will be developed, and must be determined from the inception of the activity. Aside from governing the program design and content, identifying the target audience determines which type of credits will be most appropriate.
