Joslin Diabetes Center launches diabetes Web network for physicians
Joslin Diabetes Center has launched the Joslin Professional Education Consortium (JPEC), a Web-based diabetes resource and community for primary care physicians. JPEC offers free social networking among peers and colleagues, as well as access to support and education to improve patient care for diabetes. It is designed to supplement CME activities. JPEC provides members with point-of-care access to support and patient education materials and opportunities to participate in interactive dialog with experts and colleagues about diabetes and its complications. The site also features performance improvement tools for self-assessment, which allows physicians to earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
