➽ The ACCME has reached out to numerous government and health system organizations to facilitate the inclusion of accredited CME as a “bridge to quality” and as a strategic asset to their initiatives to improve physician practice. For example, the ACCME has worked with the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the Food and Drug Administration to position accredited CME as a strategic partner in their initiatives to improve prescriber practice in the area of substance abuse prevention, detection, and treatment.

➽ The ACCME produced the booklet and presentation, called “CME as a Bridge to Quality,” to encourage CME providers to demonstrate to their stakeholders how accredited CME supports improvements in physician practice and patient care.
