I shared this yesterday, but if anyone wants to continue this discussion, please consider joining a Slack group I created for Jointly Accredited Providers. https://join.slack.com/t/jointlyaccred-pbp2631/shared_invite/zt-i1o65kup-g6PHuYgxFNaTurE1Bt0AgA

2 out of the 5 us are are planning to seek, barriers included smaller teams and fewer resources

How will COVID affect CPD programs going from JA with Commendation?

A goal without a plan is just a wish :) You need to plan ahead for commendation and have continual measurement to make sure you are getting there.
Mary Grimm
01:00:06
Examples would be very helpful!
shanley
01:00:10
Enjoyed speaking with Group 9. We exchanged a lot of ideas. All coming from different backgrounds.
Diana Durham
01:00:14
Group 12 zeroed in on C15, 16, 20, 21 and 25. discussed which ones would be hard due to limited community connections-- could use improvement, Discussion on Schwartz Rounds for JAC20, which several of us are doing already
Concetta Phillipps
01:00:15
Kate, we had an initial plan for 2020 that went awry due to the pandemic and are heading back to the measurement and analysis for which commendation criteria to go for. It sounded like most of our group was in the same boat. We did have one in our group who was already commendation accredited.
Fiza Scaletty
01:00:22
I second the examples! That would be very helpful.
Amanda mrstik
01:00:22
one barrier is the number of activities required for evidence for larger organizations.
Angela Willson
01:00:23
Agree that would be really helpful because we reflected that various criteria more automatically align with folks’ existing work
Mary Grimm
01:00:30
Barriers: Meeting the standards as a large or extra large numbers
Vicky Binder
01:00:47
is the formula of number of course needed to meet the criteria, based on a per year or is it a percentage over the number of years you were accredited.
*Laura Werts - Cincinnati Children's
01:01:42
Barrier mentioned in our group: no software platform for collecting data
Amy Bernard
01:01:46
Our group identified the number of required activities for certain criteria for larger organizations was a barrier
Deb Gartley (Hartford HealthCare, CT)
01:02:13
barrier: small CE team, need to plan proactively for commendation as it is easier than being retrospective at reaccreditation
Heidi Keeler
01:02:46
Barrier: current licensure structure values specific professional education over team based or IPEC.
Concetta Phillipps
01:02:52
@Laura, that is a GREAT point. We are trying to make it easier for our folks to report data but our team has not found a successful way yet.
Jessica Burkybile
01:03:12
Can you confirm whether a certain # of criteria within sections of the wheel are required or is it truly any 7?
Mary Strong
01:03:16
Next step: Strategically develop activities that meet several criteria
Amy Bernard
01:03:24
Some activities can be used to address more than one criteria
Kurt Snyder
01:04:18
Kanban board! That is my abstract for SACME.
Stacy A
01:04:23
some LMS systems allow you to track the criteria
Nancy Petrone- CME Northwell Health NY
01:04:59
We will be tracking the criteria with access
Kim Honcharenko - Children's Minnesota
01:05:04
add the criteria to your activity spreadsheet - it is all in one area
Mary Strong
01:05:04
to track: incorporate questions related to criteria within activity application
Jessica Burkybile
01:05:08
Love that strategy, @Deb.
Barb Anderson, UW Madison
01:05:11
We have been updating our planning application at the activity level.
KristinG
01:05:28
It would be really helpful to have "compliance vs. non-compliance" for the commendation criteria. Maybe the first time around, you could just give hypothetical examples.
*Laura Werts - Cincinnati Children's
01:05:36
@kurt - I've never used that! I've googled it to look at later.
Jessica Burkybile
01:05:43
Thanks for that clarification, Kate.
Amy Bernard
01:06:50
During planning, You can add the criteria numbers to your review forms and mark off which criteria it addresses.
John Juchniewicz
01:07:06
if tracking through JAPARS, it would be helpful to be able to run reports on how we're doing on commendation criteria. For criteria that require hitting percentages, the report could maybe show if you're under/over the required percentage
Christopher Gusack
01:07:13
It would be helpful to know exactly how we will be answering the commendation criteria - i.e. limitations on # of characters, upload pdf evidence for each where the “evidence” requirement is listed…guidance now would very helpful….and is really needed now…as we are thick into the writing of the self study.
Bina George Figueroa
01:09:30
Will there be more guidance documents to provide in submission?

Here is a direct link to the Guide Dimitra i referencing.
Mary Grimm
01:11:14
Barrier: The standards - having to meet the numbers as a large or extra large organization
Heidi Keeler
01:11:37
YES!
Marcia Martin
01:13:42
“What’s your special power?"
Concetta Phillipps
01:15:01
I think I had mentioned this last year as well - for those of us w/large/extra large non-direct patient care orgs, it would be super beneficial for us to have networking opportunities outside the summit to share our examples together on how to meet the criteria. Peer inspiration is so important!
Angela Willson
01:15:14
Yes @concetta!
Jessica Burkybile
01:15:18
A few in our group varied on whether they (the CE team) or if they allow course planners to complete the CE documentation. I plan to implement an idea Tracey Simon shared to create a short training video to educate course planners completing our online documentation so they have some insight on what we are looking for.
*Laura Werts - Cincinnati Children's
01:15:53
It would be great to have a list of providers and where they fit so we could network with similar organizations. JA folks - is that possibl?
Christopher Gusack
01:15:55
I’m sorry if I was unclear. We have utilized https://www.jointaccreditation.org/sites/default/files/815_20190611_JAC_Modifications_Commendation_Menu_Info_PDF_0.pdf as the guidance….we understand that there will be a narrative ….in the past paper-based self studies we could write a narrative as verbose as we wished….for ACCME, they have moved, as you know, to a web-form which limited number of characters….that was the nature of my question….I will review again the published materials to determine if/what I have missed in the guidance already provided. Thanks, C
Mary Strong
01:16:00
Ironic that the year is 2020. Think about vision!
