CME in the News: California Bias Mandate; MOC changes and controversy

22 Oct 2019 12:42 PM | NAMEC Staff (Administrator)

Two recent news articles may spark your interest:

First, "California to mandate implicit bias training as part of continuing medical education".  A bill passed September 12th, and was later signed by the Governor, calling for this mandatory bias training for physicians.  Continued education for physicians, surgeons, nurses and physician assistants must include courses on implicit bias. The bill will require the Board of Registered Nursing and the Physician Assistant Board to adopt regulations requiring implicit bias training by January 1, 2022.  The text of the bill can be found online.

Another topic of interest is Maintenance of Certification (MOC).  Medical Economics covered a recap of much of the controversy surrounding this issue including MOC's relationship with CME and ABIM changes to try to appease concerns. Physician groups have raised over $290,000 to fund lawsuits against certain components of MOC.  Link to the article.
