NORCAL Insurance Company, now part of ProAssurance, has received an “Accreditation with Commendation” reaccreditation decision, the highest level awarded by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The decision extends a six-year accreditation term for our risk management continuing medical education (CME) program. This is NORCAL’s fourth consecutive Accreditation with Commendation.
“We are incredibly honored that the ACCME has recognized the high standards of our CME program,” said Dustin Shaver, Vice President of Risk Management. “This year’s reaccreditation process was rigorous, and I am extremely proud of our Risk Management and CME Team.”
In preparation of meeting ACCME’s required critical elements, NORCAL routinely evaluated program results over the past six years. Program highlights during this accreditation cycle include the Perinatal Patient Safety TeamSTEPPS® education series, the Claims Rx: Emerging Claim Trends series, the Physician Systems Solutions to Decreasing Physician Burnout and Increasing Wellness Claims Rx, and the professional wellness webinar series. The CME Team also implemented a post-activity, follow-up process to survey CME participants about their behavioral changes subsequent to completing a CME activity.
Over the past 10 years, NORCAL’s CME program has awarded more than a quarter million CME certificates to healthcare professionals.
Accreditation in the ACCME System seeks to assure that NORCAL delivers education that is relevant to clinicians’ needs, evidence-based, evaluated for its effectiveness, and independent of commercial influence.
