Why is it necessary for a representative of the CME office to attend a live CME activity?

The UUCME office as an accredited CME provider is responsible to ensure that all activities are in compliance with the ACCME accreditation Essential Areas, policies and accreditation criteria. If any inquiries or concerns are raised to the ACCME about the conduct of a Live CME activity that is accredited by the UUCME office, the UUCME staff must be in a position to respond to these inquiries or concerns from the ACCME. Thus onsite observation of the CME activity is a means for the UUCME office to verify that the activity is in compliance. Offsite Fee: For courses conducted outside of Salt Lake City, there is an additional charge for all travel-related expenses including per diem and lodging for a member of the CME staff to be an on-site monitor, to assure compliance with ACCME policies, Standards for Commercial SupportSM and ACCME compliance criteria.
