State Medical Societies Discuss Compliance with Standards for Commercial Support
The ACCME participated in the following Recognized Accreditor events during the past few months. ACCME staff presented case examples to facilitate discussion about compliance with the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support: Standards to Ensure Independence in CME Activities℠ (SCS) and described the new resource available on the ACCME website: Tutorial: Ensuring Independence—The Role of Employees of ACCME-Defined Commercial Interests.
- Steve Singer, PhD, Vice President for Education and Outreach, ACCME; and Sharon Nordling, Manager of Recognition Services, ACCME, attended the New Hampshire Medical Society (NHMS) Provider Meeting.
- Dr. Singer presented via conference call at the New Mexico Medical Society (NMMS) Accredited Provider Summer Conference.
- Kelly Roberts, Manager of Systems Education and Outreach, ACCME, participated in the South Carolina Medical Association (SCMA) Surveyor Training Webinar.
These presentations are part of the ongoing support the ACCME provides for the intrastate accreditation system and for Recognized Accreditors (state/territory medical societies recognized by the ACCME as accreditors of intrastate CME providers).
