Millstone Township, NJ (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
North American Center for Continuing Medical Education, LLC (NACCME) announced today that the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) will co-locate the Facilitating Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition Seminar with the Primary Care Cardiometablic Risk Summit this September in Las Vegas, NV. With two educational programs in one convenient location, attendees of the Cardiometabolic Risk Summit—scheduled to take place September 7-9, 2012 at Bally’s Hotel & Casino—will be able to extend their stay to attend the Facilitating PCMH Recognition Seminar on September 10-11, also at Bally’s.
Presented by Consultant and in partnership with NACCME and HMP Communications, the Cardiometabolic Risk Summit is dedicated to translating late-breaking clinical research on cardiometabolic syndrome risk reduction into practical and targeted education that can easily be applied to real world clinical scenarios in the primary care setting. The Facilitating PCMH Recognition seminar provides practices with information about organizing care around patients, working in teams, and coordinating and tracking care over time to improve primary care. Both sessions will convene primary care physicians, internists, general practitioners, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other related healthcare professionals from across the country for a combined five days of interactive discussion and innovating programming.
“We are pleased to work with NCQA and offer our registrants an opportunity to further improve their practices by participating in both conferences,” commented Randy P. Robbin, CCMEP, President, NACCME. “It seems like a natural fit to promote these conferences side by side, as the content of each meeting reflects the diverse educational needs of primary care practitioners,” Mr. Robbin continued.
As part of the collaborative effort between NACCME and NCQA, discounted registration rates are available for those who attend both conferences. Registrants of the Cardiometabolic Risk Summit are eligible to receive a $75 discount on current registration rates to attend the NCQA’s Facilitating PCMH Recognition Seminar.
