Docs: Don't end CME support

Share this article:
A poll of 268 physicians found that 92% disagree with an American Medical Association (AMA) committee's call to end commercial support of CME.

Respondents to the online poll, by Pri-Med, expressed concern that a ban on commercial support would make it more expensive to receive CME and that the quality would decrease, making it harder for doctors to stay current and ultimately impacting patient care.

“I don't receive CME reimbursement from my employer,” said one respondent. “Any subsidy is very beneficial to me.” The call to end CME was rebutted at the AMA House of Delegates meeting last month.
