McGraw-Hill Professional and American College of Emergency Physicians Roll Out CME Functionality On AccessEmergency Medicine

McGraw-Hill teams with ACEP to give emergency physicians access to earn CME

credit for watching online video procedures

NEW YORK and IRVING, Texas, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Professional, a leading global provider of information resources for the scientific and medical communities, has partnered with American College of Emergency Physicians, the largest membership organization for emergency physicians, to launch Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for learning modules on AccessEmergency Medicine ( Now physicians can earn AMA PRA Category 1 credits(TM) for watching procedural videos, reading associated materials, and answering a few key questions about the procedures. The modules are designed to provide busy emergency physicians and other health professionals working in emergency departments with readily accessible, educational, and efficient opportunities to earn CME credits.

Once AccessEmergency Medicine subscribers have logged on to their personal profiles, they can complete CME activities after watching videos or animations and reading accompanying chapters from leading references such as Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Study Guide. Users can pause and resume activities at any time, download and print CME certificates, and track their overall CME activities completed within the website. Ten CME modules are currently available on AccessEmergency Medicine with 10 more scheduled to launch in early 2009.

"McGraw-Hill is proud to partner with ACEP to provide video-based CME modules on AccessEmergency Medicine," said Scott Grillo, medical publisher, McGraw-Hill Professional. "Through these high-quality modules, busy emergency physicians can get credit for learning -- when and where it's most convenient for them."

"We're excited about adding this new program to our CME offerings," said Tom Werlinich, ACEP's associate executive director of educational products. "Our members always want more CME on procedures, especially the ones they don't perform very often. It's important to them to get a 'refresher' every now and then to keep their skills sharp and their comfort levels high. AccessEmergency Medicine gives us a chance to meet their needs using new technology -- it lets us take the 'skill station' content to a much larger audience. It's just another example of how the work ACEP and McGraw-Hill do together improves our members' knowledge and skill, and ultimately, how it improves patient care."

In addition to the dedicated CME modules, AccessEmergency Medicine provides a library of more than 50 videos and animations -- including step-by- step procedures, decision rules, and critical interventions. New videos are added every month. Annual institutional and individual subscriptions are available. Physicians can also purchase 24- or 48- hour subscriptions to AccessEmergency Medicine to take advantage of the CME opportunities.
