September 2012 – The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) awarded StrategicHealthSolutions, LLC (Strategic) the prestigious Authorized Provider accreditation.
IACET Authorized Providers are the only organizations approved to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The accreditation period extends for five years and includes all programs offered or created during that time.
“StrategicHealthSolutions is proud of the education programs we have developed in conjunction with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to provide training to physicians, pharmacists, dentists, other healthcare providers, and beneficiaries on topics such as Fraud, Waste, and Abuse prevention; medical identity protection; and the use of Quality Improvement Program tools,” stated Pam Douglas, Director of Strategic’s Design and Training Division. Douglas added, “Our new partnership with IACET is a demonstration of our commitment to lifelong learning and high standards for all of our programs. We are very pleased to join such a prestigious organization and be recognized as part of an elite group of organizations that offers excellent continuing education and training programs.”
“We are pleased to welcome Strategic as our newest Authorized Provider organization,” stated Michael Todd Shinholster, President of IACET and Founder and Principal Consultant of Culture Bridge and a Lecturer of International Business at Kennesaw State University in Woodstock, GA. Shinholster added, “Strategic joins nearly 650 organizations around the globe that have had their programs vetted by third-party experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.”
Strategic will be presenting two webinar sessions for CEU credit entitled “Do You Know Where the Drugs Are Going?” Topics covered in this program include: the definition of drug diversion, types of drug diversion, the targeted medications for drug diversion, the consequences of being involved in drug diversion activities, identifying drug diversion behaviors, and preventive actions.
