CME Consult - Earn Patient Safety and Risk Management CME

Last Updated: Aug 20, 2018

CME Consult, our annual publication, helps physicians earn patient safety and risk management CME needed to renew their medical license. Each issue offers articles, case studies, and other tools you can use in your daily practice.

Both MDs and DOs are required to earn 12 credit hours in the areas of patient safety or risk management (either Category 1 or Category 2). Choose from our 2016, 2017, or 2018 issues to earn the 12 credits of patient safety and risk management CME required for renewal.

Note: If you are a PAMED member and have completed CME Consult in the past, your print copy of the new 2018 CME Consult will be in the mail to you by early September.

    Dr Fellerman

    Thank you for your note related to the 2018 CME Consult, Patient Safety Risk Management CME, and Category 2 CME.  I will respond in that order:

    1) The 2018 CME Consult will be available in September.  Notification will be sent in the weekly DOSE.

    2)  The following list of topics will satisfy the Patient Safety/Risk Management requirement:

    --Improving medical records and record keeping

    --Reducing medical errors

    --Professional conduct and ethics

    --Improving communication among physicians and with other health care personnel

    --Communication between physicians and patients

    --Preventive medicine education Health care quality improvement

    NOTE: As long as the CME activity falls within the above topics, the credits can be counted toward the patient safety/risk management requirement. The course does not have to state, and very likely may not, that it is a patient safety or risk management course.  

    3) The Department of State Licensing Division mandates the following documentation is required to claim Category 2 credit for journal reading:

    -- Name of journal

    -- Date

    -- Name of each article/topic read (maintaining a copy is recommended)

    -- Time spent reading each article (one hour = 1 category 2 CME)

     

    I hope this  information helps you and others with related questions.

    I have completed both 2016 &2017 but I thought the 2016 was for relicesure  in2016.  I do not have a 2018 edition to use for relicensing due at the end of 2018. There used to be other articles posted on the PMS site but haven't found them now.alternatively I regularly read the NEJM & Annals of internal medicine and I think there are articles in these journals that deal with patient care matters. Are these adequate and what kind of logging information is needed to document?

    Thank you,

    Herbert Fellerman M.D.
