Weekly Compliance Tips

With the adoption of the new Standards, do we need to modify our accreditation statement or other material to replace "continuing medical education" with "continuing education"?

No changes have been made to either the Accreditation Statement or the Accreditation Statement Policy.  To be inclusive of all health professions, the ACCME has chosen to update the language in the Standards, but there is no requirement for you, as a provider, to change your terminology.  Providers are welcome to use the terms "continuing medical education" or "CME" as is appropriate.


Would we comply with the "Advances Data Use" commendation criteria if we incorporate data from clinical data registries in our CME activities?

Yes, the use of data from clinical registries would be a good example of compliance with the "Advances Data Use" commendation criterion, as long as the data in the registry is used to teach about healthcare improvement!
