Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 11, 2010
CME Outfitters, LLC, an award-winning accredited provider of multidisciplinary continuing education (CE), has launched an online Community of Practice (CoP) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), which includes downloadable slide kits and rating scales.
Clinicians are encouraged to join a broad, established network of colleagues currently in the CME Outfitters community. The CME Outfitters CoP encourages peer-to-peer idea sharing, problem-solving, and access to clinical resources in a manner that is minimally time-consuming and that can be accessed from any computer. The CoP area links to other areas of the CME Outfitters website to encourage participants to access other medical simulations and additional evidence-based CME activities. The CoP area also features practice guidelines, clinical abstracts, and a broad array of educational resources.
This transfer of knowledge is an important part of improving the overall care of patients and the ultimate improvement in public health. The RA CoP is intended as a resource for practicing clinicians, and can be accessed free of charge at http://www.cmeoutfitters.com/resources.asp (free account activation required). Slide kits presented at a recent Expert Roundtable on RA can be downloaded free of charge at http://www.cmeoutfitters.com/resources_slide_lib.asp (free account activation required).
Note that these slide kits are offered for information-sharing purposes only. No CE credit is being offered.
