|WISEWOMAN Lifestyle Medicine Provider Education Project|
FOR WISEWOMAN PROVIDERS
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) WISEWOMAN Program and the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM), have engaged in a unique collaboration to offer access to provider continuing medical education in lifestyle medicine.
The access to the American College of Preventive Medicine’s Lifestyle Medicine (30.0-hour/CME credit) on-line curriculum will give WISEWOMAN physicians/clinicians the core competencies and practical skill applications to use in practice. The core components of lifestyle medicine will give clinicians practical skills that can be used to modify unhealthy behaviors that place women (age 40-64) at high risk for hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
Creating an Evidenced and Team-Based Approach to Care
All primary/family care physicians and allied health professionals should have an understanding of lifestyle medicine and incorporate its tenets into patient care. Other healthcare team members (i.e., nurses, medical assistants, health coaches, nutritionists, community health workers/health educators, etc.) are key to systemically monitoring/follow-up and referrals of patients in care. They too, are eligible to earn continuing medical education credit (CME).
The documents linked below provide a detailed description of the curriculum, its development and to WISEWOMAN clinical team access to ACPM’s e-learning portal.
This educational activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the ACCME. ACPM designated this training activity for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM
