Earn Continuing Medical Education Credit through Free Ethics Presentation
May 1, 2019 Share

Every two months, the Office of Clinical Ethics at Spectrum Health presents a different clinical ethics education topic in an effort to educate team members and provide the opportunity to earn continuing medical education credit if you are a social worker, physician, APP, or nurse (RN or LPN).

Throughout May and June, the topic presented will be Ethics and the Power of Words. The learning objectives for this session include the following:

  • Consider how the words we use impact patients and their families
  • Examine evidence-based, contemporary terminology in patient care that is empowering and respectful and may help to ameliorate stigma and health disparities
  • Discuss the importance of thoughtful, compassionate word choice in the development of meaningful relationships with patients and their families

All education sessions are offered via WebEx, providing the opportunity to participate to any team member who has access to a phone and computer or laptop with internet access.

The sessions are free of charge to all team members. You must participate in one of the following 75-minute presentations and complete the evaluation to earn 1.0 CME/CEU hours:

When you join the WebEx, please do the following:

  • Join the WebEx 5-15 minutes before the presentation starts (session start time)
  • For audio options, have the WebEx system call you (instead of you calling in). This allows the host to see a list of all WebEx participants
  • For your own privacy, please turn off the camera on your laptop, or cover the camera with a piece of paper
  • Team members who expect to receive continuing education credits, whether CEUs or CMEs, should log in into the WebEx and sign in using first and last name and email address. Without this, there is no way to authenticate that an individual participated for the entire session.
