The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and its 24 member boards have thanked the members of the Continuing Board Certification: Vision of the Future Commission for their devotion and diligence in drafting their final report for the ABMS Board of Directors. "We want to acknowledge all who offered testimony, shared best practices, participated in the stakeholder survey, shared ideas, offered their comments on the draft report and were engaged with the Vision Initiative," said the ABMS. "Their contributions were of great value and had an enormous impact in forming the Commission's final report for consideration by the ABMS Board." The board emphasized its commitment "to working with our stakeholders to improve the continuing certification process so that it becomes a system that demonstrates the profession's commitment to professional self-regulation, offers a consistent and clear understanding of what continuing certification means, and establishes a meaningful and relevant program that brings value to a physician's practice and meets the highest standard of quality patient care." The ABMS said its Board of Directors "will be discussing the report at its February meeting and will develop a framework for addressing and operationalizing the Commission recommendations, the details of which will be shared with stakeholders throughout the greater Boards Community."
