On Tuesday, October 31, 2017, our editor Thomas Sullivan will be a host of “Risks and Opportunities in Today’s Changing World of Continuing Medical Education,” a webinar. The webinar will discuss ways to take advantage of the unique opportunities presented in today’s healthcare environment and how you can minimize the risks to your Continuing Medical Education (CME) office.
Participants in the webinar will: gain perspective on the changing federal healthcare environment in the United States, including an overview of applicable rules and regulations; learn what the new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rules for CME and performance improvement/quality improvement will mean, and how to prepare for the 2018 implementation; discuss the challenges with new and proposed state policies; understand the new policy of MedTech Europe that will prohibit medical device companies from directly funding European physician travel to U.S.-based meetings, and the implications it may have on their activities; and learn about the American Academy of Family Physicians’ new blended learning format option, and how to incorporate it into your educational programming to provide a more effective learning process.
In addition to Mr. Sullivan, the webinar will feature viewpoints from Andy Rosenberg, Senior Advisor for the CME Coalition and Amy Smith, Senior Manager of CME Credit Systems and Compliance for the American Academy of Family Physicians.
