Continuing Education Key Principles

  • CE for health professionals consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a health care professional uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. The content of CE is that body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.
  • A broad definition of CE, such as the one above, recognizes that all continuing educational activities, which assist health care professionals in carrying out their professional responsibilities more effectively and efficiently, are CE.
  • Each CE activity should address certain key principles as delineated below. These principles are designed to enhance the awareness, knowledge, skills, and attitudes that a clinician needs to provide quality services to patients.

Fair Balance

The content or format of a CE activity or its related materials must promote improvements of quality in health care and not a specific proprietary business interest of a commercial interest. A product or service must be presented in a fair and balanced manner with other similar products or services. Presentations must give a balanced view of therapeutic options. Presenters should use scientific or generic names in referring to products in their lectures or enduring materials. Should it be necessary to use a trade name, then the trade names of all similar products within a class should be used. Presentations that promote a brand, device, treatment, or trade name over others in a category cannot be accredited for continuing education.

Activity Content

Content must be:

  • Evidence-based
  • Presented without promotion or bias
  • No less than 60 minutes in duration
  • This may include a question and answer portion
  • Team focused
  • Applicable to practice

508 Compliance

Electronic information should be created with people of all abilities and disabilities in mind. Presentations are required to be 508 compliant.

For electronic versions of presentations and materials to be disseminated:

  • Every slide must have a title.
  • Use an accessible font: Ariel, Calibri, Tahoma, Trebuchet or Verdana.
  • Font size should be at least 18 pt. in PowerPoint and 11 pt. in MS Word and Excel.
  • When using colored text or a colored background behind text, keep the contrast high between the two, e.g., light text on a dark background or dark text on a light background.
  • Keep backgrounds simple and images clear and crisp.
  • All images, tables, charts, and algorithms require a brief description. Enter the description in the note section for that slide, to be used in Alt-text.
  • Do not use animated transitions between slides.
  • Do not use animation on a slide, unless it is “On-Click” (the text or graphic appears quickly when you click the mouse).

Abiding by the above, will increase the rate of CE's being awarded for your training.  We are here to assist you with successfully educating your service members!
