Provider Continuing Education

Strategies for Improving Infection Control During Cancer Care (CME/CE)
No-cost continuing medical educational course for physicians and nurses on Medscape
This activity is intended for oncologists, nurses,and other providers who care for patients undergoing cancer treatment and who may affect infection control practices. The goals of this activity are to describe risk factors for neutropenia and infection in people with cancer, to discuss the policies and procedures that an outpatient oncology facility must follow to meet minimal expectations for protecting patients from infection as described in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Basic Infection and Control Plan for Outpatient Oncology Settings (BICAPP), and to identify educational tools and resources that can help facilities implement infection control recommendations.

Unsafe Injection Practices: Outbreaks, Incidents, and Root Causes
No-cost continuing medical education course on Medscape. This activity is intended for clinicians who routinely administer parenteral medicines, including allergists, anesthesiologists, dermatologists, family medicine and internal medicine physicians, hematologists, infectious disease specialists, obstetricians/gynecologists, oncologists, orthopedists, pediatricians, radiologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. The goal of this activity is to enhance awareness of safe injection practices and the need to implement appropriate protocols and practices to prevent transmission of infectious diseases between one patient and another or between a patient and a healthcare provider.

Inside Knowledge: Provider Continuing Education
This material was developed specifically for and tested with internal medicine resident physicians, but the target audience for this material is any primary health care provider who treats adult female patients. This material could apply to primary care physicians (those practicing and in training) in internal medicine, family medicine, or obstetrics and gynecology, as well as nurses and physician assistants. However, because the modules were tested with internal medicine residents, other providers should consider their specific needs and approaches. Continuing education is available for completion of this activity.

Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Optimizing Quality (CME)
No-cost continuing education activity which provides guidance and tools for clinicians on the optimal ways to implement screening for colorectal cancer to help ensure that patients receive maximum benefit. There are two versions of this course: one for primary care providers and one for clinicians who perform colonoscopy. Continuing education is available for both versions.
