We have added new examples of compliance with ACCME Accreditation Criteria 2 and 11 to the Examples of Compliance and Noncompliance: Findings Based on the ACCME Accreditation Criteria. Providers have been increasingly successful in fulfilling the ACCME’s expectations for these Criteria and these new examples are drawn from recent accreditation reviews. Criterion 2 asks providers to incorporate into CME activities the educational needs (knowledge, competence, or performance) that underlie the professional practice gaps of their learners. Criterion 11 asks providers to analyze changes in learners (competence, performance, or patient outcomes) achieved as a result of the overall programs activity/educational interventions.

The Examples of Compliance and Noncompliance: Findings Based on the ACCME Accreditation Criteria enables providers and CME stakeholders to learn from each other and to understand how the ACCME determines compliance and noncompliance with its requirements. Examples of compliance and noncompliance with each of the Accreditation Criteria, drawn from the accreditation review process, are included.

Access the Web version of the Examples of Compliance and Noncompliance here. For your convenience, we have also created a PDF of the Examples, with the new examples highlighted.
