Continuing Medical Education (CME) planners and committee members are lacking knowledge and competence around
the new CME criteria for re-accreditation with commendation with the Institute for Medical Quality. During the past year, the
Kaiser San Jose CME Program has undergone multiple changes, which may have left a performance gap with CME
planners and committee members. In order to prepare for accreditation, this workshop will realign the team's goals and
By understanding these new criteria the planners and committee members can better implement inter-professional teams,
collaborate effectively with the community, and incorporate health/practice data when creating CME programs. A clear
understanding of the criteria will lead to robust programs, which leads to better outcomes data with the ultimate goal of
improving patient health.


The speakers and planning committee have no financial relationships to disclose.
