Continuing Education Credits Offered for Continuing Awareness

Staying up to date on alerts sent by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now a way for clinicians to earn Continuing Education credits.  The most recent alerts for which the credits are offered provide up-to-date information and guidance from the CDC on transmission of HIV, care for homeless persons who are at risk of contracting Hepatitis A, and Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections – all conditions that have been related to needle-sharing behavior.  The credits are offered through a CDC partnership with Medscape, a website providing news and resources for health professionals.  The CE credits can be accessed here.
