This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine and Integrative Medicine for the Underserved. The University of California, Irvine School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The University of California, Irvine School of Medicine designates this live virtual activity for a maximum of 30 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This activity is in compliance with California Assembly Bill 1195, which requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. For specific information regarding Bill 1195 and cultural and linguistic competency, please visit the CME website at http://www.meded.uci.edu/CME/.
Non-physician healthcare professionals who complete an accredited activity will receive an HP certificate (Healthcare Provider Certificate). It is similar to an attendance certificate. That person then may submit that certificate to their own credentialing board (nursing, pharmacy, social work, etc.) to see if they can obtain transferrable CEUs from that board.
