The need to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of both pre-service education and continuing professional education (CPE) (in-service training) for the health workforce has never been greater. Decreasing global resources and a pervasive critical shortage of skilled health workers are paralleled by an explosion in the increase of and access to information. Researchers designed an integrative review to identify the evidence addressing best practices in the design and delivery of in-service training interventions. Results summarize findings on a variety of training methods, including case-based training, didactive lectures, performance feedback, training games, interactive training, training at point-of-care, and problem-based learning, among others.
