Americas: CME Providers Urged to Help Circulate Ebola Education
In a letter to CME stakeholders, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education President and Chief Executive Officer Murray Kopelow, MD, urged CME providers to help disseminate an Ebola education package put together by the American Hospital Association.
The package includes:
The information, which is available on ACCME’s Ebola Education Web page, can be added to presentations or added as fact sheets for currently scheduled CME activities, Kopelow suggests. Providers also can publish them on their Web sites and e-mail them to their learner communities.
“Your use of these materials in whatever ways are appropriate for you will support the rapid dissemination of important information to a wide audience of healthcare professionals,” Kopelow said in the letter. He also asked that CME providers take a short survey so ACCME and AHA can assess how the materials are being used.
