At ACCME, we know that CME can be much more than lectures, and we are inspired each time we hear about the many innovative ways our accredited providers are approaching clinician and team learning.
We've asked the CME community to submit photos of “CME in Action” to help us showcase real-world CME. Here are some of the photos we received. We’ll also continue to share some of these images on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #CMEinAction, and we invite you to join us by posting images using that hashtag, as well. By doing so, we can demonstrate to our stakeholders the diversity, flexibility, and quality of CME.
If you’d like to contribute, please email Tamar Hosansky, Vice President, Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos, organization name, and a brief description of the CME activity.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital
This photo, from a recent Pediatric Grand Rounds session at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, shows how through the creative use of technology in CME, a patient was able to join the conversation from her home, via Skype. This session was planned and led by members of the Patient Advisory and Family Advisory Councils, who partnered with their care providers to discuss how partnership leads to improved care.
Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning
This photo gives us a behind the scenes look at the making of Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning’s interactive digital guidebook, which will address the challenges of the community hospital to aid hematologists, oncologists, and transplant surgeons in the treatment of patients with invasive fungal infections, particularly in immunocompromised or immunosuppressed patients. As seen in the photo, green screen video clips will be used to enhance the text-based content.
This photo features an Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning Clinical Commentary. This video-based digital classroom includes didactic clinical reviews, faculty discussions and an augmented reality Mechanism of Action animation, providing clinicians with clinical data and expert opinions to aid them in providing the best possible care to their patients with inflammatory mediated diseases, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.
