About CME Accreditation
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of CME Consultants and MD Media, Inc. CME Consultants is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

CME Consultants designates this enduring material for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ . Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Since AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is the highest form of physician credit, it can often be utilized as acceptable CE’s for professionals other than AMA-defined physicians (MDs, DOs). Other disciplines that may accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ as equivalent CE or CEU for re-licensure or recertification, include, but are not limited to: Nurses (RNs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Physician Assistants (PAs), Doctors of Pharmacy (PharmDs), and Psychologists.

It is advisable for you to verify equivalency with your specific governing body, as state boards vary in their requirements. Some sections of this course may not be relevant to all license types. Each learner must confirm with their board if this course (or sections thereof) would be eligible for their continuing education requirements prior to enrolling in this course.
