AMA Develops Free CME Module on Firearm Safety
Last Updated: Jun 4, 2019
The American Medical Association (AMA) has developed an educational module on the Physician’s Role in Promoting Firearm Safety. CME credit is available with this module.
The module discusses how to counsel patients at high-risk of firearm injuries. This includes patients who have expressed suicidal tendencies and parents in a pediatric setting.
The module is free and available to both AMA members and non-members. A free AMA online account though must be created to access the module.
Pursuant to policy passed at the Pennsylvania Medical Society’s (PAMED) October 2018 House of Delegates, PAMED is developing educational resources on firearms safety and exploring partnerships with other interested stakeholders to develop such materials. PAMED will update its members when these materials are available.
