From the e-mail alert:
- The ACCME is pleased to announce the posting of a toolkit for providers on systems to monitor their regularly scheduled conferences (RSC) for compliance with ACCME Elements and Policies. The toolkit is designed to help providers understand ACCME's expectations for monitoring systems and requirements for reporting on monitoring systems at the time of reaccreditation.
Under typical circumstances, only medical schools and hospital-based CME providers produce activities that can be characterized as RSCs. A course is identified as an RSC when it is planned to have 1) a series with multiple sessions that 2) occur on an ongoing basis (offered weekly, monthly, or quarterly) and 3) are primarily planned by and presented to the accredited organization's professional staff. Examples of activities that are planned and presented as a regularly scheduled conference are Grand Rounds, Tumor Boards, and M&M Conferences.
If you have any questions about RSCs, please contact the ACCME.
