Each CE Course submitted with an application must include the following:

  1. A narrative description of the program to be offered by the provider to psychologists for credit, and must include research to be relied upon in the presentation of the program.
  2. A copy of the material to be presented to course participants, e.g., PowerPoint presentations, handouts, etc.
  3. All promotional material concerning the program.
  4. The learning objectives of the program.
  5. The name of the instructor(s) for the program.
  6. The qualifications of the instructor(s) to conduct the program.
  7. A sample program evaluation form to be completed by each program attendee.
  8. A sample certificate of completion to be given to attendees upon completion of the program.
  9. If offering Medical Errors courses: Many of the programs that have been developed to allow Florida health care practitioners to satisfy the course requirement on prevention of medical errors are exclusively geared for clinicians working within medical settings. This may be inadequate for psychologists, in terms of clinical relevance and applicability. Consequently, in order to be approved to offer the medical errors prevention course to psychologists, providers must develop course content that moves beyond that which is typically found in the medically-oriented programs (i.e., wrong site surgery). In addition to including a study of root-cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety, providers should discuss areas within mental health practice that carry the potential for “medical” errors. Examples would include improper diagnosis, failure to comply with mandatory abuse reporting laws, inadequate assessment of potential for violence (e.g., suicide, homicide), failure to detect medical conditions presenting as a psychological/psychiatric disorder.
