Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates

Some state licensing boards or health agencies established specific content requirements for CME Credit. State requirements might include Ethics (E), Palliative Care (PA), Opioid/Pain Management (OPM), Risk Management (RM), and Patient Safety (PtS). In an effort to help individuals meet these requirements, Clinical Congress sessions that include this content have been identified and designated as Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates. When claiming CME Credit for these sessions, individuals can elect to include the Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates, and this will be documented as part of their CME Certificate and Clinical Congress Transcript.

Individuals MUST check with their state or local medical board to verify that the content does meet the specific requirements.
