Does the ACCME information about the ER/LA Opioid Analgesics REMS apply to all REMS?

No. The ACCME information applies only to the ER/LA Opioid Analgesics REMS. The ACCME appreciates that the FDA recognizes the value of accredited  education and believes that accredited CME should be considered as a strategic asset to all those trying to improve drug safety. Since 2009, the ACCME has supported the role of accredited CME as a strategic asset to REMS FDA-approved products, provided the proper controls are in place to ensure independence. The ACCME will be ready to respond if the government calls on accredited CE to support implementation of other REMS.
