The course page states that accreditation has been requested from ABC1, what does this abbreviation stand for? ABC1 stands for 'The Accreditation Bureau Cluster 1'. This is the accreditation agency for general practitioners, elderly care physician and physician in intellectual disability medicine in the Netherlands. This means that upon completion of the course accreditation points are awarded to these professional groups by us in PE-online.
The course page states that accreditation has been requested from ABAN, what does this abbreviation stand for? ABAN (Accreditation Bureau General Continuing Education) is the organization where accreditation can be requested for general continuing medical education courses. General continuing education is education that is not subject-specific, for example: health law, medical ethics, communication, management skills and the healthcare system. Continuing education that (partly) involves medical practice and is also intended and proportionally suitable for several specialisms may also qualify for accreditation by the ABAN. An example of this is medical education on MS that highlights the disease for multiple specialisms.
