AMA updates popular CME course
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Feb. 28, 2005
The AMA has updated its online continuing medical education module on osteoporosis.
Intended for primary care physicians, the new module, "Managing Osteoporosis: The Online Series" was launched December 2004 and is free to all.
Since the AMA launched the osteoporosis CME program in 1999, the Web site has received 2.1 million page views.
The program has been redesigned to cover the latest treatment and prevention guidelines and now allows physicians to print their CME certificates immediately after completing the program.
The module consists of 12 sections covering various risk factors such as prevention measures, treatment and rehabilitation options for osteoporosis. Each section is worth up to 1.5 CME credits.
The online CME also features case studies addressing hormone replacement therapy and osteoporosis in two postmenopausal women, as well as a 70-year-old male receiving androgen-deprivation therapy.
