Every six months we offer three different programs. The programs require you to watch a presentation or read an article, then complete a test at the end. You must score 70% or above to receive credit for completing the continuing educational program. Once you have completed the program, there are a few different ways of submitting your test:
1. E-mail your completed test to CEUPrograms@ctsma.org
2. Mail a copy of your test to Joanne Rodrigues, CMA (AAMA), 831 Beacon Valley Road, Nagatuck CT 06770
CEUs will be submitted to the AAMA at the end of the CEU Program. Please allow 6-8 weeks after the posted closing date of the program for credits to show on your AAMA transcript.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued its landmark report on medical errors, To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System. The report’s finding was that as many as 98,000 people die each year due to medical errors. This report truly changed how healthcare providers, consumers, and various stakeholders have embraced methods to assess errors, and have developed protocols to prevent medical errors.
In today’s diverse healthcare setting, there’s a lively mix of five generations:1
· Veterans - born 1922 to 1946
· Baby boomers - born 1946 to 1964
· Generation (Gen) X - born 1964 to 1980
· Gen Y/Millenials - born 1980 to 2000
· Gen Z - born 2000 to 2012 (soon beginning to enter the workforce)
With most Veteran caregivers now retired and Gen Zs not quite of age, baby boomers, Gen X, and Gen Y make up most of the workforce.
