CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE) INFORMATION CE CREDIT REPORTING PROCESS FOR THE 2016 ANNUAL MEETING SNMMI is using an electronic CE credit reporting process for this year's Annual Meeting. All attendees must scan the bar code on their badge when entering CE sessions in order to obtain CE credit. The scan tracks your participation in sessions. For all sessions, if you exit more than 15 minutes before the end of a course/session, you are required to scan out. If you stay for the entire course/session, you are not required to scan out. You will receive CE credit for the time that you are in each course/session. (NOTE: Pharmacists and Technologists: partial credit cannot be granted for partial attendance). Attendees can review and verify all tracked course/session information on computer kiosks located in the registration area. Discrepancies for courses or sessions not tracked can be resolved at the Education Desk. Sessions that you have attended can be reviewed at www.snmmi.org/scanreport2016.

EVALUATION To receive your CE credit certificate, you must complete the online evaluation by visiting www.snmmi.org/evaluation2016. Evaluations will be available one hour after completion of each session. Log in using your SNMMI login and password. At the end of the meeting, please log in again to complete the Overall Evaluation section. Once you have completed the entire evaluation, your CE Certificate will appear; please print or save for your files. PLEASE NOTE: In order to receive CE Credit, the Evaluation must be completed by July 15, 2016.

GRIEVANCE POLICY If participants are not satisfied with the program, they must submit a complaint no later than 90 days after the program. Participants should state in detail why the program attended was not satisfactory. If participants feel that the program did not meet its objectives, this should be clearly stated. Also, if participants feel that the program was misrepresented, they should state this clearly. (Please note that not meeting the objectives does not always warrant a refund.) The complaint is then forwarded by the SNMMI to the course organizer. The organizer then carefully reviews the complaint and, if necessary, contacts the author of the complaint for further details. The organizer then decides whether the complaint is strong enough to warrant a refund. The organizer then reports the results to the SNMMI. If a refund is issued, it excludes the processing fee of the registration.
