Hot-button issues drive state CME mandates

By Carolyne Krupa, amednews staff. Posted Feb. 13, 2012.

“At least eight states in the past five years have approved rules governing what subjects doctors should study as part of their continuing medical education…………………At least 16 states mandate what CME subjects physicians must study. Of those, eight states have approved 14 new course requirements in the past five years. They come in response to a variety of issues, including domestic violence, the aging population and more awareness of the burdens of health disparities on minority communities.”

Should CME providers be jumping with joy? After all this is a business opportunity. More mandate, more CME activities to meet the demand, more money in the CME coffers. But wait. Where is the evidence that any of these mandates have had any significant impact on physician competence, performance patient heath outcomes? Show me the Data! Legislators are engaged in single loop logic here. Mandate something physicians must attend to in their CME and change will occur. Not so simple. Read the article. What do you think?
