I just became aware of what looks like an excellent online educational resource for CME professionals:
The ABCs of Accredited CME, which offers 10 short modules (most less than a half hour) on everything from who all the players are in the CME game to educational formats to PI-CME and, of course, ensuring your activities are fair and balanced. Developed by the American Academy of Dermatology and The France Foundation, both -accredited providers, the idea, according to the Web site, is "to clarify that the intent of the 'rules' is that accredited CME be based on the principles of adult learning and be independent of industry influence." It was easy to sign up for, and it looks like it's free of charge. I know what I'll be doing this weekend!
