Stakeholders Recommend Priorities for Meeting Healthcare Community Needs

Many thanks to all of you who participated in our online survey this spring and shared your ideas for how the ACCME could best meet the future needs of our accredited CE community, our learners, and the healthcare community. We appreciate your thoughtful ideas and insights, which informed the discussions at the strategic planning retreat convened by the Board of Directors in July 2015.

Overall, the responses indicate the stakeholder community’s support for our current strategic imperatives and trajectory. Respondents want the ACCME to:

  • Continue to provide education, support, communications, and resources to support the accredited CE community.
  • Prioritize the continued simplification and evolution of the accreditation requirements and process, including implementing the proposed commendation criteria.
  • Continue its strategies of leadership and engagement in response to the evolving healthcare system, including promoting the value of accredited CME, fostering interprofessional continuing education (IPCE), and facilitating the alignment of continuing professional development (CPD) systems.

A brief summary of the survey responses is available here.
