Continuing Medical Education

Continuing Medical Education (CME) consists of educational activities that serve to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public or the profession.

The content of CME is the body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public [AMA House of Delegates policy #300.988]. CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center is accredited by the New Mexico Medical Society to provide Category 1 PRA credit hours for appropriate programming.  The department has regularly scheduled accredited activities and special CME accredited activities throughout the year.

G.R.A.C.E.® WAS DEVELOPED by Roshi Joan Halifax and is a process that cultivates compassion while interacting with others. It draws on neuroscience, social psychology, ethics, and contemplative perspectives. This scientifically grounded training focuses on an intervention that enables one to foster specific elements allowing compassion and resilience to emerge in the process of interacting with others.

A useful mnemonic device, G.R.A.C.E.® stands for Gather attention, Recall intention, Attune to self/other, Consider what will serve, Engage and end.

Join Upaya founder and Abbot Roshi Joan Halifax, oncologist and communication specialist Anthony Back, and nurse ethicist Cynda Hylton Rushton for this weekend intensive. This training is appropriate for clinicians, professional and family caregivers, therapists, chaplains, social workers, human rights workers, and others.

DEVELOPED BY DR. JOAN HALIFAX in the 1970s and taught in hundreds of medical and educational institutions around the world, the Being with Dying Professional Training Program for Clinicians gives essential tools in the care of those who are seriously ill and those facing death.
The training program addresses the need for healthcare providers to develop knowledge and skills in the psycho-social, ethical, existential, and spiritual aspects of illness and dying, and covers core issues related to the care of people facing serious illness, dying, death, and grieving.

The week of training uses many different learning modalities including: didactic and inquiry processes, peer-to-peer learning and dialog, case study and council practice, reflective practices, yoga, G.R.A.C.E.®, and practices enhancing the awareness and importance of professional responsibility.
Designed primarily for physicians and nurses, we also accept a small group of experienced administrators, social workers, hospice workers, psychologists, chaplains, and clergy who have experience working with end-of-life care patients.
