Educational Resources on Gastroenterology
Challenges abound for patients and clinicians alike when it comes to managing gastrointestinal diseases, making it imperative that all stakeholders on the care team—including the patient—continue to hone their knowledge, confidence, and best practice strategies to improve outcomes. CME Outfitters’ Gastroenterology Education Hub provides clinicians with the education and resources necessary to optimize their approach to clinical care for patients with inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic idiopathic constipation, and diabetic gastroparesis.
CME/CE for Gastroenterology
But direct patient care is just one piece of the puzzle. The burden of prior authorization can significantly impact clinical workflows. Yet, according to a recent survey from the AMA, only 30% of surveyed practices reported that their office lacks a formal process for handling the prior authorization workload. To help offices with best practice strategies, we’ve added CME/CE activities, checklists, and templates for the care team, as well as videos and checklists to share with your patients to help them better understand the process and how they can contribute as advocates for their care. Participants who complete the entire prior authorization series will receive not only CME/CE credit but will also be awarded a Certificate of Excellence in Prior Authorization.
