EBSCO Publishing has announced that it will offer formal Continuing Medical Education credits (CMEs) through its DynaMed point-of-care reference database. The CMEs available through DynaMed are American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and American Medical Association (AMA) prescribed credit for documented point-of-care learning activities. The new Get CME option in DynaMed provides a means for obtaining CME credits from applicable CME accreditors. Credits may be awarded by any Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) accredited CME provider. AAFP and AMA approve 0.5 prescribed credits for every point-of-care learning activity that utilizes an approved point-of-care CME source. DynaMed is currently approved as a source of point-of-care learning CMEs in the United States.
Additional enhancements have also been made to the DynaMed interface designed to improve the research experience of users at the point-of-care including the following: improved result screen navigation and usability allows for a larger viewing area for DynaMed articles and more rapid navigation to key DynaMed content; a new Print Preview functionality allows users to review the content of their selected articles prior to printing; new email functionality provides users with a preview of their selected text to be emailed prior to being sent; an expanded list view to increase accessibility of recently updated information; and DynaMed customers may elect to subscribe (at no additional cost) to the new DynaMed Weekly Update, a weekly email newsletter comprised of one to five articles of interest to clinicians.
