Chicago, IL
January 20, 2008

Today, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) published an informational booklet entitled, “CME as a Bridge to Quality: Leadership, Learning, and Change within the ACCME® System” as a resource to accompany the plenary session presentation of ACCME Chief Executive, Dr. Murray Kopelow, at the 34th Annual Meeting of the Alliance for CME in Orlando. The 22-page booklet encapsulates the essential philosophy and practice of the ACCME in its mission to ensure that continuing medical education (CME) is a strategic asset that improves US healthcare. Dr. Kopelow remarks, “we intend for this booklet to be an essential resource that our nationally-accredited providers, state-accredited providers, and volunteers can use to help their stakeholders understand the importance of CME to an organization’s healthcare mission.” Dr. Kopelow’s plenary presentation and the booklet are the most recent examples in the ACCME’s continuing commitment to support the role of the CME system in improving patient care.
