This online innovation gives registered GPs access to a free, user-friendly, online diary. By accessing this website, doctors can view a calendar of upcoming events accredited with Continuous Medical Education (CME) points, record points for events attended, record internal practice-based educational activities (including personal reading and studying) and track the number of CME points accumulated in any given time period.
Recording attendance and CME points gained at medical conferences and events will soon become a compulsory requirement for GPs and the CME Diary service is a welcome development in that regard. It saves time by providing family doctors with a quick and easy way to register their CME points on an ongoing basis across a range of internal and external activity. The benefit of having everything online at the click of their mouse is immediately recognisable – it is efficient and certainly beats having to search for paperwork that might go back five years.
