The provider develops activities/educational interventions in the context of desirable physician attributes (competencies). (formerly Criterion 6)


The ACCME is looking for an active recognition of "desirable physician attributes" in the planning process (e.g., "We have planned to do a set of activities that touch on professionalism and communications to address our patients' concerns that they are not receiving complete discharge instructions - which is the identified professional practice gap.") The simple labeling of an activity with a competency is a start and provides the learner with information with which to choose an activity and potentially will be important for reporting purposes within Maintenance of Certification/Continuing Certification.
