Earn Continuing Education Credits
The Association of Occupational Health Professionals in Healthcare is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation.
Continuing Nursing Education Contact Hours (CNE)
A request for continuing education is under review by ANCC accredited provider Association of Occupational Health Professionals in Healthcare (AOHP).
All pre-conference workshops, general sessions and breakout sessions have been applied for as Continuing Nursing Education Contact Hours. Nurses can earn contact hours depending on session (i.e., pre-conference, general and breakout) attendance. Each nurse should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spends in the educational activity. Partial credit will not be granted for any session, nor will any credit be given until that individual session has been completed.
The pre-conference workshops, available on Wednesday, September 4, offer a maximum of 8.0 contact hours. The main conference agenda offers a maximum of 18.5 contact hours.
Case Management Hours (CCMC)
This program has been submitted to The Commission for Case Manager Certification (CCMC) for approval to provide board certified case managers with 26.5 clock hours. Continuing education units will be given for each individual session of the conference. Attendance for the entire individual session is required to obtain credit for that session. Partial credit will not be granted for any session, nor will any credit be given until that individual session has been completed.
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
The conference has applied for Prescribed CME credits from the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Verification of Participation
Continuing education credit will be given to those individuals who have viewed the entire presentation and returned the session evaluation and verification of session attendance. The number of contact hours accumulated will depend on the number of sessions the attendee chooses to attend. The entire lecture, breakout session or workshop must be attended to receive credit for continuing education. No credit will be given before the completion of the individual session, nor for partial attendance. A certificate will be awarded to the participant who meets the criteria.
Verification of Attendance
For those attendees who do not require continuing education credits, but wish to verify their attendance, a Verification of Attendance certificate is available upon request – post conference.
AOHP acknowledges the operational requirements of credentialing organizations. The sponsors of continuing education activities and the speakers at these activities disclose significant relationships with commercial companies whose products or services are discussed in educational presentations. Disclosure of a relationship is not intended to suggest or condone bias in any presentation, but is made to provide participants with information that might be of potential importance to their evaluation of a presentation. Each speaker has completed a Declaration Form. The forms will be available at the conference.
