Annual Meeting CME focuses on advance care planning, Million Hearts™

All Wisconsin Medical Society members are invited to participate in a continuing medical education (CME) opportunity at the Society’s Annual Meeting in Madison on Saturday, April 13. The learning opportunity begins at 3 p.m. with a presentation about advance care planning by Ken Kephart, MD, of Fairview Senior Services and the University of Minnesota Medical School. A second presentation from 4 to 5 p.m. will focus on the national Million Hearts™ initiative.

Details about this CME activity are here and in the House of Delegates (HOD) handbook, which is available on the Society’s website. Member log-in is required to view the handbook and other information about the Annual Meeting on the Society’s website. Click here to access the log-in page (additional member log-in information is here).

Also online are the resolutions that will be discussed at the Annual Meeting. Members may comment on resolutions via the online Virtual Reference Committees until April 1. Comments received to date have been posted. The Virtual Reference Committees stem from a commitment by Speaker Charles Rainey, MD, JD, to facilitate increased participation in the Society’s policy-making process and allow members who cannot attend the Annual Meeting to submit their views on resolutions.

The resolutions also will be discussed during Caucus meetings, which began this week. Society members who plan to attend are asked to register at least one week before the meeting to allow adequate time for Society staff to make dinner reservations. Please e-mail Nikita Sessler in the Society’s Government Relations Department to register for a Caucus meeting.
