Yes. Accredited providers can choose to include components in their CME mission statements in addition to those specified in Criterion 1. However, during the accreditation process, providers’ mission statements will be evaluated only to ensure that the mission statement includes “expected results articulated in terms of changes in competence, performance, or patient outcomes that will be the result of the program.”

Criterion 1 was modified as part of the February 2014 changes to simplify the accreditation requirements and process.
