Healthcare providers can earn CME credit for watching Unity Three Cs video (April 3, 2017) 

April 3, 2017 – UNITY Consortium (Unity) has designed and implemented a quality improvement initiative to facilitate healthcare provider delivery of a confident, concise, and consistent (Three Cs) recommendation for routinely recommended vaccines for adolescents (11, 12, and 16 year olds).  This approach employs a presumptive recommendation consistent with a social norm to vaccinate; and bundles all adolescent ACIP-recommended vaccines equally within the recommendation. The initiative sets a goal of same day vaccination and applies motivational interviewing principles to conversations with vaccine-hesitant parents.

Unity, in partnership with the Indiana School of Medicine (IUSM), is offering CME credit to physicians (and non-physician healthcare providers) nationwide for viewing its Three Cs Vignettes and Motivational Interviewing video. The video is available at no charge through IUSM as an online CME activity worth .75 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsNon-Physician 0.75 hours.

Access the video and obtain CMEs on the IUSM website.  The Indiana University School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
