WebMD, teams with CDC, ACOG for breast cancer e-CME
WebMD has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to educate clinicians about appropriate care for women with early signs of breast cancer. In collaboration with WebMD's Medscape, the CDC has developed an online CME program consisting of five modules, which the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) will promote to its more than 50,000 members. According to Steve Zatz, MD, executive vice president of professional services at WebMD, the program was developed to educate physicians about the latest evidence, protocols, and guidelines around detecting breast cancer. "The program is consistent with Medscape's mission of providing medical professionals with the highest quality information so that they can provide the best care to their patients," Zatz tells ePharm5.
