Comments to ACCME from Two Key Stakeholders

September 13, 2008 at 5:10 pm Leave a comment

Two very important responses to the ACCME “Call for Comment” on proposed changes to policies related to commercial support for CME were submitted to the ACCME this week. Both provide well considered agreement with some of the intentions of the ACCME recommendations. Equally important, are the questions posited to the ACCME and the disagreements offered in both comments. You’ll find the response from the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education here.The Council of Medical Specialty Societies has also provided a very thoughtful response to the ACCME.

The Alliance and CMSS represent key constituencies in CME. Let’s hope the rational and thoughtful observations and recommendations from the Alliance and CMSS are heeded by the ACCME.

For some interesting observations about both submissions visit Policy in Medicine.
