Frequently Asked Questions
Are There any Exceptions/Accommodations to the Mandatory Mask Policy?
If all participants in the course bring proof of being at least 10 days after their final vaccine dose, then the lecture portion will be held without masks.
Once patients arrive for hands-on, masks will be required for all in the room during that portion.
Everyone must wear a mask without any exhaust valves at all times. If you bring a mask with a one-way valve, you will be required to wear a paper mask over that mask for the duration of your time in our lecture room.
There are no medical exceptions. There are no exceptions if you have already contracted SARS-CoV2. There are no exceptions if you are antibody positive no matter how good you think the test is. Why? While some people may never get ill a second time, they could harbor the virus a second time and spread it unknowingly. Per the CDC, proof of vaccination is the only reason right now to not wear a mask if all in the proximity are also vaccinated.
I Feel Sick, What Should I Do?
By all means, get tested, but even if your test is negative, if you have…
Fever over 100F
Loss of Smell or Taste
…you will not be admitted to the class and will need to reschedule.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the LIVE CHAT option to let us know.
It is our policy to allow for FREE priority rescheduling for any provider who feels ill at the time of the live course date.
What are the Protocols for Hotel-Based Courses?
Hotel-Based courses start at 8am. Only paid attendees will be allowed in the room at that time. Seating will be 6 feet apart with a personal iPad at each station for the display of lecture slides. Masks are required at all times (unless ALL participants have proof of being at least 10 days from final vaccination dose) Extra breaks will be provided for snacking and drinking which shall occur outside of the lecture room. Many hotels will still not do in-room catering. In that case, if you stay for the entire day, PracticalCME will provide a boxed lunch. You may bring your own food/beverage to consume during the course. We are looking forward to providing our usual great in-room catering once the hotels allow it.
What are the Protocols for Hands-On Patients?
PracticalCME does not provide patients for you to treat without prior arrangement. It is ideal to treat a friend or relative known to you so you can follow her progress over time. Please ensure that your patient has not had any coronavirus symptoms in the prior 72 hours: Fever over 100F, Cough, Malaise, or Loss of Smell or Taste. If your patient arrives at the course with any of these symptoms, she will be dismissed and your hands-on opportunity will be rescheduled.
All patients must wait outside of the training room/office until you call or text them when it is their turn. They are not allowed in the room for any part of the lecture or review.
What about the Hands-On Patients?
Our Office-Based courses (Charlotte, Portland, Seattle, Athens, GA) start at 8am. Attendance will be limited to allow for proper distancing during the lecture/review portion in the waiting room. Masks must be worn at all times unless all involved are at least 10 days post-final vaccination.
What Happens if the Course Location Imposes a Travel Restriction?
PracticalCME shall comply with all travel restrictions when imposed.
Therefore, if a travel restriction affects our instructor, the course will be rescheduled or moved to a neighboring state with no restriction.
If a travel restriction affects an attendee, the attendee will be given the option to do a priority rescheduling to any future date or location without penalty.
