The Medical Executive Committee approved a policy to provide e-learning courses to meet CME requirements for Medical Staff membership. The programs will be based on quality assurance recommendations arising from hospital-specific cases, as well as regulatory and safety requirements. As recommended by the Education & Quality Committees, the topics now under development are fire safety, pre-procedure risk assessment, anti-coagulation medications, DVT prophylaxis, sepsis management, and disruptive physician behavior.
Completion will be required as part of the March cycle of reappointments with instructions to sign-on to the e-learning system sent at that time. AMA Category 1 credits will be available for completing and evaluating the courses.
