About the Idea Generator
At UNT Health Science Center, we are eager to collaborate with you in developing high quality, innovative, outcomes-oriented continuing education activities. The form below is a vehicle you can use to start the conversation. The idea needn’t be very far along in development, and, in fact, the earlier the better. As you consider an activity, the most critical questions are whom you want to reach and why. That is, who are the practitioners involved and what is the clinical practice you seek, through your educational activity, to improve? Read more about the accreditation process below or
INCEDO must be included early in the planning process with joint providers and co-sponsors to collaborate in the identification of continuing education needs, determination of practice gaps and educational objectives, selection of all persons and organizations that will be in a position to control the continuing education content, selection and presentation of content, selection of educational methods, determination of expected outcomes and evaluation of the activity. We suggest allowing 2 months for a one-hour, 4 months for one-day and 5+ months for a multi-day activity.
INCEDO will have activity content peer reviewed by an unbiased content expert to assure that the information provided is based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine or pharmacy as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients. If scientific research is referenced to support a patient care recommendation, the peer reviewer also will assess the cited research to assure that it conforms to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.
For Medicine (ACCME) Accreditation
One accredited provider (UNT Health Science Center or an accredited joint provider) must take full responsibility for the compliance of all aspects of the activity.
For Pharmacy (ACPE) Accreditation
UNT Health Science Center and the accredited or non-accredited co-sponsor must clearly define the working relationship between the parties including task completion dates for each provider and recourses should the parties involved fail to meet their responsibilities. Non-ACPE-accredited organizations cannot assume responsibility for compliance with ACPE standards. Therefore, this responsibility must be assigned to UNT Health Science Center or another ACPE-accredited provider.
