Hematologists Can Now Earn CME Credits Through the Journal Blood
Date:1/28/2010

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society of Hematology (ASH) now offers physicians who diagnose and treat blood disorders a new resource for earning continuing medical education (CME) credits while staying abreast of the latest clinical strategies in the rapidly changing field of hematology. Through a partnership with Medscape, an online network of medical content for physicians and other health professionals, hematologists can earn CME credits by testing their comprehension of articles published in ASH's widely-cited biomedical journal Blood.

The first Blood article to offer CME credit will be included in the January 28 issue, both in print and online. Blood is published weekly, and one CME article will appear in the journal in the fourth week of every month. By completing a set of study questions after reading the selected article, physicians will have a convenient and effective way of earning credits to maintain board certification, enhancing their knowledge on the subject matter, and improving the care they provide to patients.

Medscape is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians, and this activity will be administered by Medscape. A maximum of 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit can be earned through the January 28 article, and future articles may offer even more credit. There is no charge to participants to earn CME credits through this program.

The Blood journal is available on www.bloodjournal.org. To earn CME credit for selected Blood articles, physicians should visit http://cme.medscape.com/cme/blood. Other CME opportunities offered through ASH can be found at www.hematology.org/practice.
