Silver Web Health Award in Medical Education- Winter/Spring 2014
Sharpening Fibromyalgia Diagnosis and Management Skills: Improving the Patient Experience won the Silver Web Health Award in Medical Education from The Web Health Awards, an awards company that recognizes high-quality digital health resources for consumers and health professionals. The webinar, produced by Paradigm Medical Communications and certified by Global Education Group, is conducted by two fibromyalgia expert clinicians, a fibromyalgia patient advocacy professional, and a fibromyalgia patient, and aims to educate healthcare practitioners through evidence-based data and real-life experiences on the fact that some common misconceptions about fibromyalgia patients are no longer accepted. It will instruct learners on how to start a productive and respectful clinician/patient relationship that will lead to the improvement of care and quality of life of fibromyalgia patients.
Award for Outstanding CME Enduring Material:
Global, along with The Center of Excellence Media and Medical Learning Institute, received the award for Outstanding CME Enduring Material at the Alliance 2012 Annual Conference. The goals of the program, Annual Considerations in Multiple Myeloma and Non- Hodgkin’s Lymphoma: Case Studies, were to address real problems encountered by community physicians, nurses and pharmacists as members of an inter-professional team managing patients with multiple myeloma and non-hodgkin’s lymphoma and to provide applicable solutions within a practical, case-based activity. The initiative consisted of a highly successful newsletter series focused on two real patients and the responses by faculty for a team-based approach for managing the cases in a true inter-professional manner.
Best Practice in Educational Design and Evaluation:
The National Association of Medical Education Companies (NAMEC) granted Global and Applied Clinical Education (ACE) the Best Practice in Educational Design and Evaluation award in 2013 for the REMEDIES:Focus on Opioid Tolerance program. REMEDIES is a comprehensive educational platform that meets the FDA Blueprint for Prescriber Education for Extended-Release and Long-Acting Opioid Analgesics, released in July 2012. Including live, web-based, interactive, performance improvement and employee screening initiatives, REMEDIES provides valuable tools to providers to help navigate the clinical challenges of opioid prescribing in practice.
