The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety (PPAHS) produces medical education programs that are for continuing medical education credits as well as non-credit programs.
Continuing Medical Education Courses
The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety is an accredited provider of continuing medical education.
PPAHS identifies, promotes, educates and certifies clinicians in best practices that promote patient safety and improve the quality of patient care. PPAHS provides continuing professional development (CPD) courses accredited through the CPD Standards Office, a world-leading accreditor.
Continuing medical education (CME) credits are required annually to maintain medical licenses for doctors, nurses, and other clinicians. In addition, most hospitals require a specified number of credits for their physicians to remain credentialed to see patients. CPD and CME “help medical professionals maintain and upgrade their knowledge in the chosen medical field and broaden their personal and professional experience after obtaining the postgraduate degree and becoming specialists. Above all, CPD-CME enhances the quality of patient’s care by constantly improving the physician’s skills, broadening the physician’s professional outlook and helping him/her to keep up with the vast amount of scientific information constantly being generated.”
CPD is a broader term than CME covering different educational programs. Internationally there is a move from CME to CPD, and PPAHS’s accreditation as CPD provider reflects PPAHS’s US and international following.
