More CME deadlines to watch
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted May 9, 2005
Continuing medical education professionals seeking accreditation for the first time on or after November 2005 must be in compliance with all of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education's updated standards for commercial support. To help providers accomplish these tasks, the ACCME has posted forms for a documentation review, an activity review and a surveyor's report on its Web site http:www.accme.org/.
Medical professionals whom the ACCME already has accredited, but who are seeking reaccreditation on or after November 2006, also will have to have all their documentation and procedures compliant with the updated standards. The ACCME revised its standards for commercial support last fall, and the standards became effective May 1 for all new CME activity development.
