It is a goal of CME Outfitters to establish neuroscienceCME.com as a resource for the neuroscience community and serve as a point of sharing by developing a neuroscienceCME Community of Practice. CME Outfitters is committed to providing a community for sharing practice improvements, to develop and share knowledge and build expertise, and to provide tools and strategies that support future learning for all involved.
Available for download are clinical rating scales and slides that can be used to teach and to share with colleagues as clinicians serve in a mentoring role in their communities. Many other resources are available exclusively at neuroscienceCME.com, including Clinical Knowledge Centers that feature in-depth content in a variety of topics, case-based educational formats such as case vignettes and more robust neuroscienceCME Medical Simulations, clinical abstracts and literature reviews, practice guidelines, as well as links to clinical trials and numerous online resources. As the neuroscienceCME Community of Practice grows, more resources and opportunities for sharing will be added.

Case-Based Medical Simulations Available at neuroscienceCME.com
neuroscienceCME Medical Simulations are dynamic, interactive, patient management scenarios that walk the learner through differential diagnosis, treatment, and management strategies in a variety of clinical areas. These simulations combine video presentations, the latest evidence, and real-world challenges and questions to create a learning environment focused on improving patient care. Each question represents a decision point in the case where you, as the clinician, must choose how to proceed based on the available information. Just as in clinical practice, there are often several choices that may lead to an optimal outcome for each patient.
