ACCME Announces Inaugural “Expanded Educational” Meeting
ACCME has announced its inaugural expanded educational event, which will take place April 24 through 27, 2017, at the Loews Chicago Hotel. The event promises to celebrate the CME community’s achievements and provide inspiration as participants work together to shape the future of accredited CME.
The ACCME 2017 Meeting will offer numerous opportunities to engage with ACCME staff, expert faculty, and colleagues to give attendees tools and tactics for positioning their CME program as a strategic partner in healthcare improvement initiatives. The meeting will bring together participants from a broad spectrum of healthcare organizations – as a larger group, as well as in small, hands-on sessions – to share best practices in education, create action plans to drive innovation, explore opportunities for alignment among continuing professional development systems, and develop strategies to advance CME’s contributions to healthcare improvement.
The meeting will provide opportunities for attendees to create action plans to maximize your CME program’s effectiveness, drive innovation, and leverage educational technology; as well as discover new strategies for implementing ACCME’s new commendation criteria and advancing CME’s contributions to healthcare improvement. Participants will leave ACCME 2017 with new insights and practical strategies that will help to further the role of CME as a transformative tool for your organization.
What Does Registration Include?
Registration includes three keynote sessions, your choice of varied breakout sessions (i.e., strategy sessions, case study sessions, and “Ask the Expert” sessions), a Public Health Fair and a Health Professions “Open House,” breakfast and lunch on all three days, all meeting materials, access to Wi-Fi in the meeting space, and a Welcome Reception.
There is also a pre-conference session – ACCME’s Starting Point: An Introduction to Accreditation. The pre-conference session will take place on the afternoon of Monday, April 24th, and is open to attendees for an additional registration fee. Registration for that session also includes lunch, and is aimed to provide those new to CME with an introduction to the ACCME’s foundational requirements.
If you are interested in attending, you can register here. Space is limited, so ACCME is encouraging those who wish to be a part of this inaugural event as soon as possible.
