Posted on: 9/24/2019

online trainingCME offered 

Starting in 2020, a new law takes effect that will require all Illinois licensed professionals who need continuing education to renew their licenses to complete 1 hour of education related to sexual harassment prevention.

The 1-hour CME requirement is part of the 150 hours needed to renew one’s medical license – not in addition to the 150-hour CME requirement.

ISMS offers coursework designed to fulfill the state’s new educational requirements related to sexual harassment prevention training for re-licensure.

This training is FREE to members and their staffs via our Education Center.

Before you know it, the July 31, 2020, deadline to renew your Illinois medical and controlled substance licenses will be here!

Each on-demand course below is designed to fulfill the 1-hour CME requirement on its own.

  • Clinical psychologist and medical educator Daniel O’Connell, PhD, presents the courses in our Sexual Misconduct in the Medical Setting two-part series:

    • Part 1: Among Colleagues
      All workplaces share the desire for staff to feel free from unwanted intrusions of a sexual nature. It is also required by law that workplaces have an organized approach to prevent, investigate and remedy situations in which unwanted sexual invitations, comments, innuendos and pressures are experienced. Dr. O’Connell discusses sexual misconduct specific to the medical setting.

    • Part 2: Defining Boundaries in the Clinician-Patient Relationship
      Dr. O’Connell guides participants through the guidelines developed by the medical community, licensing authorities and the legal system to help protect patients and clinicians from drifting into behavior that is potentially unethical and problematic.

  • #MeToo and Medicine: Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Illinois Docs
    Expert attorneys Joan Lebow and Tony Schumann lead this program, which covers aspects of sexual harassment prevention from quid pro quo and hostile work environments to defending your practice.
