Colorado Alliance for CME Discusses Emerging CME Opportunities
Murray Kopelow, MD, President and CEO, ACCME, gave a presentation via webinar at the 2013 Colorado Alliance for CME Annual Conference held in August. He discussed the emerging opportunities for accredited CME, to contribute to public health improvement; for example, he described how federal agencies are incorporating CME as a strategic partner in their health improvement imperatives. He explained the opportunities for CME to advance interprofessional collaborative practice and education through the joint accreditation process, a collaboration of the ACCME, Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. He encouraged CME providers to “lean in” and demonstrate leadership by participating in stakeholders’ initiatives to advance professional practice and better, safer care.
