Resource Assists Stakeholders in Promoting the Value of CME

We have heard from our community of accredited continuing medical education (CME) providers and other stakeholders that we need to work together to communicate the value of accredited CME and its contributions to healthcare improvement more broadly.

We have prepared a resource that includes key facts about CME’s effectiveness, independence, and responsiveness to the evolving healthcare environment. The resource describes how accredited CME promotes engagement with healthcare professionals by providing them with opportunities for relevant, practice-based, independent education and improvement in a system that meets their needs, and promotes quality in patient care.

You are welcome to reproduce and distribute this resource to your leadership, learners, volunteers, and colleagues. I look forward to working with you to communicate our shared passion for learning and the power of education to drive quality in our profession and for the patients we serve.

Sincerely,
