- The CME Coordinator assists the CME Director in the day-to-day management of the CME Office. She collaborates with physician-planners in the development of CME Program content, with emphasis on regulatory compliance and assurance that CME activities are planned in compliance with the ACCME 22 Criteria for Accreditation and the rules of the AMA PRA. She also collaborates with the Finance Director to oversee compliance with the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, including the collection of financial disclosure information from all parties affecting the content of CME, identification of financial relationships representing a conflict of interest, and works with the CME Director to ensure resolution of COI, documentation of that resolution in the files, and communication of reported financial relationships to learners in course materials.
The coordinator is the point of contact to the ACCME on behalf of FIU/HWCOM, provides regular updates to the ACCME "Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS)", and ensures that required compliance information and data is entered into FIU/HWCOM CME Database System for both electronic program planning information as well as learner attendance database.
Working with CME consultants, the coordinator develops metrics to track CME projects, implements and utilizes the tracking system on a daily basis for the management of the overall CME Program, designs and implements educational outcomes measurements in accordance with planners' stated intended results for measurement of learner competence and/or performance and/or patient outcomes, and ensures that outcomes measurements are analyzed and provided to the CME Director for review and discussion with the CME Committee.
