Sign Up for Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Designed to Fulfill Licensure Requirement
Posted on: 5/16/2019

CME offered 

A new law requires 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 license – not in addition to the 150 hour CME requirement.)

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) has proposed the rules for what fulfills the educational requirement related to sexual harassment prevention training. 

Good news! ISMS offers coursework designed to meet this requirement – FREE to members and their staffs via our Education Center.

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" series:

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.

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.

This just in! Also check out ISMS’ newest course: #MeToo and Medicine: Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Illinois Docs.

Expert attorneys Joan Lebow and Tony Schumann lead the program, which covers aspects of sexual harassment prevention from quid pro quo and hostile work environments to defending your practice. This course is also designed to fulfill the state’s new sexual harassment prevention CME requirement for re-licensure

The new law will apply to license renewals starting Jan. 1, 2020.
