Weekly Compliance Tips

Criterion 26 requires the use of data, but does the ACCME require that accredited providers use identifiable patient health or practice data?

No!  The use of identifiable patient health or practice data is not required or expected of providers by the ACCME.  In fact, the ACCME recommends: "Providers should seek appropriate guidance from institutional policies and practices concerning the protection of confidential and identifiable information when including health or practice data in CME activities."


Who are the health professions students described in Commendation Criterion 25?

In the Menu of New Criteria for Accreditation with Commendation, Criterion 25 uses the term "health professions students" to refer to students of any health profession (i.e. medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physician assistants, etc.) across the span of healthcare education, including professional schools (i.e. nursing, medical, pharmacy schools) and graduate education (i.e. residency and fellowship programs).
