2 What you will learn today What is purposeful education at ACC What is meant by an “accredited provider of CME/CNE” Joint providership as a special service offered to ACC Chapters

3 Purposeful Education at ACC – a Strategic Theme “Transform CV workforce by developing a personalized, competency-based educational experience; producing a curriculum that addresses clinical, administration and leadership skills; and engaging and expanding the community of learners.” Delivering the right education to the right person at the right time

4 ACCME & ANCC Accreditation ACC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians ACC was awarded “Accreditation with Commendation” in 2013 for a six year term ACC is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation

5 What is a Joint Providership? The ACCME defines joint providership as the: “providership of a CME activity by one accredited and one non-accredited organization. Therefore, ACCME accredited providers that plan and present one or more activities with a non-ACCME accredited provider are engaging in a joint providership”

6 What does this mean in plain English? The American College of Cardiology is the accredited provider. An ACC Chapter is the non-accredited provider As the accredited provider, ACC must take full responsibility for the content and conduct of a CME activity.

7 What is meant by “full responsibility”? Documentation of needs assessment Analysis of gaps in learners knowledge, competence or performance A Planning Committee Process Development of a fair-balanced & evidence based agenda Disclosure and resolution of real or perceived conflicts of interest Management of commercial support Evaluation & outcomes assessment of program

8 Why is ACC so careful with Joint Providerships? The ACCME may request an audit of any certified activity for which ACC jointly provides CME If there are any complaints regarding a Chapter Joint Providership, ACC is accountable The ACC educational “brand” stands for high- quality, evidence-based and fair balanced activities and must not be compromised
