I can hear the moans now: The American Medical Association's House of Delegates has finally approved the latest of its Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs many versions of proposed recommendations around commercial support and CME. Sigh. I'm with our MM columnist Stephen Lewis on this one: CEJA just officially turned itself into an oxymoron. Never mind what the Alliance for CME thinks, or what I would guess would be the opinion of vast majority of CME providers who actually do this stuff day in and day out.
No, this must mean that at least some of the greater minds at the AMA HOD think it's a good idea to ignore current safeguards and react to the potential for the perception of some possible problem, rather than base actions on evidence and data.
