You’re a busy professional in the demanding field of healthcare. One of the demands is finding the time to take Continuing Medical Education (CME) hours to keep abreast of the latest innovations in healthcare, not to mention maintain your licensure and accreditation.
Hartford HealthCare’s Department of Continuing Education can help with the new “Tweeting for CME’s” program.
Yes, you can participate in a Twitter chat led by a healthcare professional – just like yourself – and earn CME credits for taking part in a substantive manner.
“Each one-hour chat discusses a de-identified patient case and/or peer-reviewed journal article,” said Hillary Landry, professional education manager with Hartford HealthCare’s Office of Experience, Engagement & Organizational Development. “Participants wishing to earn CMEs would review the case or article in advance, then attend and participate in the chat by providing their insights using a specific Twitter hashtag: #CMEHHC.”
CMEs would be available at the conclusion of the chat via a chat-specific link provided on Twitter, based on participant application and review of the chat record to confirm participation.
“We’re excited to be on the cutting edge, providing clinicians with CME opportunities that are valuable and convenient,” Landry said.
The first Tweeting for CME’s chat takes place on Friday, August 24, 2018, at 12 noon (ET). It will be led by addiction medicine specialist J. Craig Allen, MD, medical director for Rushford, a partner in the Hartford HealthCare Behavioral Health Network. The article for discussion may be found here.
