Conversations in CME — What It is About

January 11, 2008 at 9:47 pm Leave a comment

There is a constant barrage of issues arising that impact the field of Continuing Medical Education. Funding issues challenging the independence of the content of industry supported CME offerings. Concerns that the CME accreditation system may be too complex and ineffective in influencing accredited CME providers link their efforts to physician competence or performance, patient safety, team care, or improvement initiatives. The emergence of a certification process for CME professionals. Independent reports that suggest major changes in how CME is funded, establishing a national focus on improving CME, and suggestions for the kinds of groups that should ( and by exclusion) should not be accredited CME providers. Just to mention a few.

Conversations in CME is a place to weigh in on these issues and your issues. It is a community of colleagues free to present and debate their opinions, make suggestions, and express concerns. From time to time there will be links to podcasts presenting “conversations” with informed leaders and stakeholders in CME. I want to make these learning opportunities for the CME professional.

Perhaps through these discussion, we can find ways to shape the future of CME from the perspective of the CME provider.

Join in and let your thoughts be known.
