Earning Patient Safety CME Just Got Easier with PAMED’s CME Consult Publication

The Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) knows there are many demands on a physician’s time: patient care, keeping up with the latest health care regulations, and managing electronic health records, just to name a few.

When you add in the responsibilities of parenthood and family life, there isn’t much time left over for continuous learning. That’s why PAMED has collected all of its latest patient safety and risk management CME in its new publication: CME Consult. It’s a compendium of CME articles you can use to obtain six CME credits in a single volume.

CME Consult will be published annually every fall. Each edition will include articles, case studies, practice assessments and action plans, and related tools and resources you can use in your daily practice.

The current edition of CME Consult features articles on these health care hot topics:

  • Empathy, Enthusiasm and Teamwork in Today’s Health Care Environment
  • Making Your Electronic Health Record More Effective
  • Managing the Risks Associated with e-Communications
  • “Non-Traditional” Primary Care Alternatives (Retail clinics)
  • Reducing Risks for Patients with Obesity
  • Reducing the Risks of Missing a Lung Cancer Diagnosis
  • Sepsis: Risk Management Strategies to Support Timely Treatment

It’s not too early to start meeting your CME requirements for the 2015-2016 licensure period. Remember: both MDs and DOs are required to earn 12 credit hours in the areas of patient safety or risk management (either Category 1 or Category 2).

CME Consult is free for members. Nonmembers can purchase it for $249. It’s available in both print and online versions.

Important note: CME Consult replaces PAMED’s intouch and Managing Risk publications. Any PAMED members who subscribe to the print editions of intouch or Managing Risk will automatically be subscribed to the print edition of CME Consult.
