ACCME publishes complaints summaries

As promised, the Accreditation Council for CME has made good on the revisions to its complaints process it made last summer and has published a Complaints Process Web page, a compendium of blinded summaries from the complaints process, and an online complaints submission form.

So now you have some materials to help better understand the ACCME's compliance expectations.

And, just in case you haven't gotten around to it, the latest ACCME e-newsletter included a reminder to ACCME-accredited providers to enter your 2010 program and activity data by March 31. The annual data report that comes out of all your work is so useful for all of us that I'll add my entreaties to ACCME's.

You do have to use the ACCME's Program and Activity Reporting System if you are ACCME-accredited. If you're not sure how to use the system, check out one of the accreditor's PARS webinars. Called "Answering Your PARS Questions," they don't cost anything, but you do need to register to make sure you get a slot. If webinars aren't your thing, there are a bunch of other resources on ACCME's Web site.
