Survey Results about Accreditation with Commendation Criteria Proposal

The ACCME thanks the CME providers and other stakeholders who participated in our survey about the proposal for a menu of new criteria for Accreditation with Commendation. The ACCME received approximately 250 responses. The responses demonstrated the CME community support’s for the proposed criteria and the menu approach. Of the provider respondents, about 75% said that the proposed menu would make Accreditation with Commendation feasible for them. Read a summary of the survey results.

We will continue to engage with the CME community to gather qualitative feedback in the coming months. The ACCME will review the feedback before taking formal action and issuing a formal call for comment.

The proposed criteria incorporate feedback from the ACCME Board of Directors and ideas gathered from the CME community and other stakeholders over the past few years. The goal of the proposed criteria is to respond to the evolving healthcare system, to reflect and reward the valuable work providers may already be doing, and to challenge providers to aim for even higher achievements.
