Dr Jamila Al Shaikh, Director of Medical Education at the DHA, said: “In the health sector keeping abreast with the latest information, updates, new guidelines etc. is of vital importance and much-needed for clinicians and other healthcare staff. At the DHA, we pay strong emphasis to continuing medical education (CME) and aim to strengthen and foster a culture of CME through such initiatives. Using technology we can now provide clinicians such information on their screens so that they can view it regularly and at their convenience.”

Accreditation Committee in the Professional Development Center at the request of the Learning Resource Center at the Medical Education Department approved the accreditation with the statement: ”UpToDate site is accredited as an Internet Point of Care Activity equivalent to 0.5 CME online points, a medical professional learning can acquire”.
