>>McMAHON: I’m delighted to introduce the ACCME Highlights Report, which is available online and through our social media channels. In it you’ll be able to read about the progress we’re making and have made to transform continuing medical education through innovation, evolution, and alignment.

From our new commendation criteria to our collaborations with regulatory systems to our expanded educational initiatives for CME providers, we’re working hard to make meaningful change for educators, clinicians, and ultimately patients.

In this report, you'll see how we're working together with you and our CME community to leverage the power of education to respond to a very dynamically changing healthcare environment. To improve team collaboration and patient care. To engage with healthcare leaders to promote the value of CME. To collaborate with government agencies and others to support quality and safety initiatives. And finally, to expand our community to include CME leaders and institutions from around the globe.

You’ll be able to read about all of these initiatives and much more in the 2017 Highlights report, available online.
