NC-CME NEWSbrief, September 11, 2014
NC-CME Aligns With ACEhp National Learning Competencies A recent decision was made by the NC-CME Board of Directors to align with the ACEhp National Learning Competencies, which emphasize the NC-CME’s dedication to a professional development pathway for CME and CE professionals. This significant alignment encourages continuous professional development by focusing on the eight competency areas:
- Using adult and organizational learning principles
- Designing educational interventions
- Measuring the performance of CEhp activities and the overall CEhp program
- Collaborating and partnering with stakeholders
- Managing and administering the CEhp program
- Leading the CEhp program
- Engaging in self-assessment and lifelong learning
- Engaging in systems thinking in CEhp
For current CCMEP’s, it will be even more important to focus on one’s own continuous professional development. The NC-CME and Alliance Own Your CPD worksheet developed last year is one tool that can be used to track your own CPD.
For those considering preparation for the exam to become a CCMEP, future versions of the exam will be framed using these competencies. The new exams are still in development and will be interprofessional in scope instead of primarily focusing on CME professionals.
