Continuing Education/Continuing Medical Education (CE/CME)

The VIDC offers CE/CME credit for Nurses and Physicians who attend designated live streaming (live activities) and/or on-demand (enduring material) sessions. The content presented in the education sessions represents the opinions of the faculty and not necessarily the views of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

Please Note: Credit hours are determined based on individual attendance/participation and may be less than the maximum number offered. In addition, the amount of CE/CME credit available is subject to change.

This chart indicates the maximum number of credit hours available for each type of education session (live/on-demand). The CE/CME credit offered for each session will be indicated on the Virtual Interdisciplinary Conference website.
