Several CME publications address breaking news, emerging policies and research within the CME enterprise, and Global counts itself as a major contributor in this area. As a leader in the CME / CE industry, Global regularly devotes a portion of our annual budget and resources to the research and development CME publications.
In addition to our development and publication of The Global Guide Volume IV, Stephen Lewis, General Manager, is a regular guest contributor for Meetings Net (formerly Medical Meetings Magazine). Additionally, various staff members have appeared in multiple cover stories in the magazine.
The Global Guide IV: A CME Reference Compendium
The Global Guide features more than 165 pages of compliance documents and up-to-date CME information, including:
- Updated with new Sunshine Act Information
- The latest ACCME accreditation criteria and standards
- New ethical codes and standards for ensuring the independence of CME
- Content validation value statements
- Maintenance of Certification and Licensure FAQs
- AMA PRA Booklet and CME “Get the Facts” Campaign
CME Crossroads: A Survey of Continuing Medical Education Analysis, Criticism, Research and Policy Proposals
The CME Crossroads white paper analyzed CME criticism, research and policy proposals between 2005 and 2010. Peer-reviewed by CME stakeholders from the ACCME, AMA, professional societies, medical education companies, hospitals, academic centers and grant funding organizations, the white paper features more than 100 studies and documents and identifies four CME policy and scrutiny trends. After identifying these trends and providing information to clarify the analysis of CME, the paper concludes with several recommendations to positively shape future debate and CME analysis.
