Drug industry steps up for credentialing group
experience and completion of self-assessment, according to information on NC-CME.org.
Judy Ribble, PhD, NC-CME president, said she hopes small donations help the group attract a large foundation grant.
Maureen Doyle-Scharff, director of professional alliances, Ross, said, credentialing “would be a very positive step in the right direction from an industry perspective,” as a way to help ensure proposal competency.
Some medical societies agree, as their CME staffs need an increasingly broad skill set to collaborate on maintenance of certification.
Not everyone fully endorses NC-CME, and questions linger, such as who will pay for the
credential and test questions, who should take the exam and what's an apt re-certification plan.
