Understanding CEs/ CEUs/CMEs

Grow Midwives is hosting our Sustaining Care of Families in Low-Resource Regions CME Conference on Jun 9, 2023 at the University of Alaska – Anchorage. This conference has 6 educational sessions presented by incredible movers and shakers in the birth industry. 

It was important to us to be able to offer continuing education to our attendees to provide valuable information. Continuing education (CE) is defined by ACNM as a learning experience beyond basic midwifery education, intended for CNMs/CMs. 

This conference provides 7 hours of continuing education for our attendees! 

Approved by Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) and UAA Alaska Center for Rural Health and Health Workforce – Alaska’s AHEC. ANMC is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)

ACNM describes continuing education (CEs) as formal education programs/activities for professional development and training, or for credentialing, for which academic credit is not awarded. The educational experience should be designed to enlarge upon and go beyond the professional knowledge and skills learned in an education program, refresher course or internship, and/or to be outside of or in addition to routine professional obligations and responsibilities. 

Continuing education activities should promote professional goals for increased competency and excellence and should be characterized by programs designed to introduce newly emerging concepts, principles, theories and research in health care.

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

You receive CMEs for educational activities you participate in that are designed to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. 

CME credits are important to physicians because some states require a specified number of credits annually to maintain medical licenses, and because most hospitals require a specified number of credits for their physicians to remain credentialed to see patients. CME credits are authorized by the American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

A continuing education unit (CEU), or continuing education credit (CEC), is a measure used in continuing education programs to assist the professional to maintain their license in their profession.
