Criterion 29

The provider designs CME to optimize communication skills of learners.

ACCME Note: 

Communication skills are essential for professional practice. Communication skills include verbal, nonverbal, listening, and writing skills. Some examples are communications with patients, families, and teams; and presentation, leadership, teaching, and organizational skills. This criterion recognizes providers that help learners become more self-aware of their communication skills and offer CME to improve those skills.
