Pathways


A.  Completing and passing the CMET Certification Exam.  If selecting this option, no other options are required to be completed.

B.  Case study presentation/documentation, according to CMET Guidelines of five (5) complex wound cases.  Cases of patients seen and treated since last certification or recertification.  If a case is not approved by the credentialing committee or the Board, the case can be either modified to meet approval or a new case can be submitted.  If selecting this option, no other options are required to be completed.

C.  Publication of one (1) wound care article in a peer reviewed journal, PubMed indexed and approved by CMET.  Two articles published servers to recertify the member without any other requirement.

D.  Presentation of a lecture at a wound care meeting approved by CMET.  Two lectures preclude the other alternatives and serves to recertify the member.  If two lectures are submitted they must be on two different wound care lectures (that is the same lecture at two different conferences will be considered as one lecture).

E.  Presentation of a poster or oral abstract at a CMET approved wound care meeting.  Two abstract presentations preclude the other alternatives and serves to recertify the member. If submitting two abstract they must be on different wound care topics but can be on related topics such as two different treatments for infection. The two abstracts can also be on the same topic if they demonstrate continuation of primary research. Assessed on by a case-by-case basis
