    The National Association of Medical Education Companies (NAMEC), announced the winners to the 14th annual NAMEC Best Practices Awards to improve Continuing Medical Education (CME). 

    CME is an industry rooted in change, a profession that calls upon our abilities to recognize and address new challenges. It requires us to utilize our intellect, our diligence, and our creativity. NAMEC believes that each of these elements should be acknowledged. NAMEC congratulates the 2020 award winners for Best Practices in CME.

    NAMEC Best Practice in Learner Outcomes was presented to the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning for “Personalizing Outcomes Measures to Effectively Assess Impact of Medical Education”.

    NAMEC Best Practice in Collaboration Among CME Stakeholders was presented to Medscape Education for “Optimizing Rare Disease Education: Bringing Together Multiple Stakeholders During the COVID-19 Pandemic”.

    NAMEC Best Practice in Innovative Educational Methods was presented to Pri-Med Institute for “Highs & Lows: Opportunities and Benefits of Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Primary Care (An Adaptive Learning Experience)”

    NAMEC Best Practice in CME Outside of the USA was presented to the Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning for “Classroom to Clinic™ Localized Small Group Learning for HCPs Working in Oncology” and to CME Outfitters for “Real-World Evidence: CDK 4/6 Inhibitors in Hormone Receptor-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer”.

    Finally, the NAMEC Brian P. Russell Exemplary CME Professional Award was presented to Katie Lucero, PhD, Medscape Education.

    Obviously, in the age of COVID-19, the continued transition of continuing medical education to online and virtual formats has been accelerated.

    NAMEC members can post and share in our member forum strategies that have worked - or not worked - for your businesses. Non-members can join immediately online and join in the discussion.  Membership is open to individuals with an interest in the field, or for institutions that agree with the NAMEC mission of representing the interests of medical education companies (MECs), including advocacy for MECs and education of the professionals who work for them; supporting the advancement of certified education as an integral part of the healthcare community in improving patient health outcomes; fostering increased collaboration among certified education stakeholders in a manner of mutual support, professionalism, and respect; and advocating, demonstrating, and supporting the value of certified education.

    A recent article at News Medical notes:

    "Most states in the United States allow up to 25% of clinical hours to be simulation-based and some states permit over 50%. Numerous organizations have already looked to online education for training regarding COVID-19, and a number of them are now transitioning to online platforms for other training needs."

    NAMEC has also partnered with PGI to help organizations effectively enhance their online and virtual presence.
