All CME providers must ensure the content of the educational activities is accurate, current and objectively presented. Educational needs should guide activities and the development of their purpose and/or learning objectives.
These needs may be driven and defined by individual physicians, groups of physicians and/or outside organizations.
Non-clinical subjects (e.g. office management or physician-patient communication) may also be considered for CME credits.
CME activities may include the explaining of complementary and alternative health care practices. These will however, need to include discussion of the existing level of scientific evidence that supports the practices. Education that advocates specific alternative therapies or teaches hot to perform associated procedures, without scientific evidence or general acceptance among the profession that supports their efficacy and safety, will not be accepted for CME credits.
