Due to the popularity of the Choosing Wisely continuing medical education (CME) webinars, TMA will continue to offer the CME bundle to members.
Choosing Wisely® is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation that promotes conversations among physicians and patients to ensure delivery of the right care at the right time.
The Choosing Wisely CME webinars were recorded at TexMed 2014, where TMA's Council on Health Care Quality led a continuing medical education track for physicians about the program. TMA, Choosing Wisely, the TMA Foundation, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, and TMF Health Quality Institute sponsored the CME quality track.
The Choosing Wisely CME webinar bundle includes five webinars presented by Texas physicians:
- Webinar 1: The Choosing Wisely Campaign;
- Webinar 2: Oncology and Choosing Wisely;
- Webinar 3: Choosing Wisely Specialist Panel;
- Webinar 4: Choosing Wisely Panel Discussion; and
- Webinar 5: Choosing Wisely — Patient Activation in Safety: Patient Safety Tools.
Visit the TMA website to register for your CME and learn about the Choosing Wisely initiative and how it can help you. You can earn 3.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 3.75 ethics credits. In addition to the CME webinars, you'll find helpful resources provided by the Choosing Wisely campaign and TMA, such as the full list of recommendations, videos, patient education materials, and more.
The ABIM Foundation awarded TMA and its philanthropic arm, the TMA Foundation, a grant to advance the Choosing Wisely campaign among Texas physicians. Support for the grant comes from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
