Volunteer to Serve as an AADE Continuing Education Reviewer!

Oct 16, 2017

AADE is seeking volunteer peer reviewers for 2018 Live and Self-Study continuing education activities. The educational content of these diabetes related activities need to be reviewed by healthcare professional peer reviewers.

As a volunteer peer reviewer, you will ensure that these continuing education activities are of high quality and are in compliance with the standards of the organizations that accredit AADE to provide continuing education (CE). Involvement as an AADE reviewer adds to your professional development and provides you the opportunity to ensure the integrity of AADE education programs.

The review takes approximately one to two hours per activity and reviewers are asked to commit to a minimum of two to five hours monthly. For each activity an email is sent out to reviewers with the details of each activity. Those reviewers who are interested can simply respond back with their availability to review.

Prospective reviewers must meet established qualifications and submit an Application along with a Professional Expertise Form and a Biographical/COI Disclosure Form. CE Application reviewers may serve a one- year term and have the ability to serve additional term(s). Training will be provided regarding the review of applications and the standards/criteria for continuing education specific to each discipline.
