➽ The ACCME clarifies the accreditation requirements to ensure they are understandable to clinicians who may not be involved in CME as well as to physicians who are CME professionals.
➽ The ACCME holds special educational sessions for providers at risk of losing their accreditation. These providers must bring their physician leaders to the sessions. ACCME’s chief executive talks one-on-one with the physician leaders to help them understand the accreditation requirements, the ACCME’s expectations, and the relevancy of the educational requirements.
➽ The ACCME produces video interviews with physician leaders discussing how they have overcome barriers to physician change and facilitated physician commitment to learning and change through CME.
