The provider has a CME mission statement that includes expected results articulated in terms of changes in competence, performance, or patient outcomes that will be the result of the program. (formerly Criterion 1)


The ACCME asks the accredited provider to craft a CME mission statement that will serve as a roadmap for what it seeks to achieve through its accredited CME program. The provider is free to include any parameters that are relevant to its program, learners, setting, goals, but must at least include what it seeks to change in terms of learners’ competence, performance and/or patient outcomes.
