Branchburg, New Jersey – February 24, 2022 – We are pleased to announce that Vesna Drenovac, RPh, MSc, President of Vemco MedEd, LLC, earned a designation of a Certified Healthcare CPD Professional (CHCP™) from the Certification Commission of the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions. Through her dedicated work and active involvement, Vesna continues to be one of a select group of colleagues who have demonstrated competency in the field of healthcare continuing professional development(CPD). CHCP™ is the only credential that designates qualified individuals as Certified Healthcare CPD Professional.
The Certification Commission of the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions was created and launched in 2008 as a means to verify knowledge and skills of CME staff and providers. This program is also a response to a close scrutiny by the government, the public, and the CME profession which is placing an increased pressure on the medical education industry and their funding sources to validate the integrity of CME programs. The Certification Commission requires CME professionals to monitor and document their ability to be compliant with national guidelines developed by groups such as the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (HHS OIG).
"In this time of unprecedented changes in healthcare education, it is important to stay informed and relevant. The CHCP designation confirms that you and your organization indeed are informed and relevant. We strongly support the efforts of the CME community to create a system that insists on established standards of professionalism related to the specialty of CME. In fact, this certification process acknowledges academic degrees, CME work experience, and professional involvement in CME related activities and broader healthcare CPD." said Vesna Drenovac, President.
