There's been lots of talk lately on the CME LinkedIn group about the need for someone, anyone, to take the lead in advocating the value of continuing medical education.
I think the ACCME is listening. In its June/July e-newsletter, ACCME also announced a survey it's conducting to find out what accredited CME providers and other CME stakeholders are doing to "promote accredited CME's value as a strategic priority," from what you're doing to what is and isn't working to get the word out in your own organization, and the world at large. They're also asking for ideas on how ACCME can "support you in these efforts." ACCME plans to publish the survey results in an upcoming newsletter.
