Self-Reporting/Enduring Material CME Activities

A “Self Reporting” (enduring material ) is a printed, recorded, or accessible online activity that does not have a specific time or location designated for participation. Examples: journal, online interactive educational module, recorded presentation, podcast.

Because there is no direct interaction between the provider and/or faculty and the learner, the provider must communicate the following information to participants so that they are aware of this information prior to starting the educational activity.

  • Principal faculty and their credentials
  • Medium or combination of media used
  • Method of physician participation in the learning process
  • Estimated time to complete the educational activity (same as number of designated credit hours)
  • Dates of original release and most recent review or update
  • Termination date (date after which enduring material is no longer certified for credit)

Activities that are provided electronically, whether they have live or enduring activities, must comply with all accreditation requirements.

Journal CME
A journal-based CME activity includes the reading of an article (or adapted formats for special needs), a provider stipulated/learner directed phase (that may include reflection, discussion, or debate about the material contained in the article(s)) and a requirement for the completion by the learner of a pre-determined set of questions or tasks relating to the content of the material as part of the learning process.

Internet CME
There are special requirements for Internet CME because of the nature of the activities:

  • Activity Location: ACCME-accredited providers may not place their CME activities on a Web site owned or controlled by a commercial interest.
  • Links to Product Web sites: With clear notification that the learner is leaving the educational Web site, links from the Web site of an ACCME accredited provider to pharmaceutical and device manufacturers’ product Web sites are permitted before or after the educational content of a CME activity, but shall not be embedded in the educational content of a CME activity.
  • Transmission of information: For CME activities in which the learner participates electronically (e.g., via Internet, CD-ROM, satellite broadcasts), all required ACCME information must be transmitted to the learner prior to the learner beginning the CME activity.
  • Advertising: Advertising of any type is prohibited within the educational content of CME activities on the Internet including, but not limited to, banner ads, subliminal ads, and pop-up window ads. For computer based CME activities, advertisements and promotional materials may not be visible on the screen at the same time as the CME content and not interleafed between computer windows or screens of the CME content.
  • Hardware/Software Requirements: The accredited provider must indicate, at the start of each Internet CME activity, the hardware and software required for the learner to participate.
  • Provider Contact Information: The accredited provider must have a mechanism in place for the learner to be able to contact the provider if there are questions about the Internet CME activity.
  • Policy on Privacy and Confidentiality: The accredited provider must have, adhere to, and inform the learner about its policy on privacy and confidentiality that relates to the CME activities it provides on the Internet.
  • Copyright: The accredited provider must be able to document that it owns the copyright for, or has received permissions for use of, or is otherwise permitted to use copyrighted materials within a CME activity on the Internet.
