19 - How much do we retain?
As mentioned before, it is important to understand how one learns in order to better select and increase the effectiveness of CME activities. While we probably only retain about 10-30% of what we read and/or hear, we retain about 90% of what we do ourselves. For example, it has been demonstrated that the best way adults learn is by solving problems. Hence, the correct answer to the previous question is A, we retain 10% of what we read, but 90% of what we do ourselves.
