CPME continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and guidance/updates issued by the CDC, WHO, and other sources. But most importantly, CPME wants to ensure that the health and safety of our students, residents, fellows, learners, faculty, staff, and patients is at the forefront of any decision made.
CPME understands that each institution and provider of continuing education will be facing unique challenges. If a local outbreak occurs, local public health decisions must be followed and schools, institutions, and providers will be obligated to follow the directives of the local authorities. CPME encourages you to think about how you might modify practices at your institution and/or continuing education activities in your program(s) within the context of the current situation and to also consider potential issues that may arise as the virus spreads.
As organizations including CPME cancel in-person meetings and governments take steps to flatten the curve of the outbreak, many students, residents, fellows, learners, faculty, staff, and patients are searching for answers about how to address COVID-19 in their work and personal lives.
