About Your CE Source
Who We Are
The CE program at CFMC promotes quality patient care by guiding and supporting physicians, nurses and other health care professionals in their quest to maintain and advance their knowledge and skills and by assisting health care organizations to improve their systems and processes for health care. CFMC is an approved provider of CME credit by the ACCME and approved by the Colorado Nurses Association, which is accredited by American Nurses Credentialing Center, to award contact hours for nurses. CFMC has a well-established CE Committee to review and approve continuing education conferences, workshops, performance improvement and enduring materials.
The Office of Continuing Education (OCE) at CFMC can work with organizations and professionals to enable them to award credit for educational activities for physicians and nurses. CFMC has an outstanding reputation and a high level of credibility as a leader in the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) and Continuing Medical Education arenas. CFMC is proud to have served many customers, locally, statewide and nationally in an effort to ensure they realized their educational goals.
The OCE at CFMC offers flexibility in cost, convenience, and customization that is often faster and less expensive than internal and other external programs. The approach is straightforward and efficient. The OCE joint sponsors with non-accredited entities based on their individual needs to ensure that their objectives are met on time. The OCE helps joint sponsors achieve their vision, while strictly adhering to accreditation requirements and standards.
All topics are considered for CE activities. Quality improvement is the primary interest. CFMC is in the unique position of having access to state and national databases that generate patterns of care in order to identify problematic clinical issues.
The CE program enhances the ability of health care professionals to improve clinical outcomes for patients. Evidence-based activities produce measurable results and ongoing quality improvement. All attendees make subjective assessments through individual evaluations. Results of these quality improvement studies and of participant evaluation responses are compiled and used to update needs assessment materials, forecast future continuing education activities and improve content and format development.
