MEDICOM WINS GOLD HERMES AWARD

Morrisville, Pennsylvania – MediCom Worldwide, Inc., an ACCME-accredited provider of continuing medical education, was recently recognized by their peers for their excellence in producing Emerging Solutions in Pain (ESP) by being awarded the 2008 HERMES CREATIVE GOLD AWARD. The awards are an international competition for creative professionals and are judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.

ESP is a multi-award winning, comprehensive educational initiative, funded by an independent educational grant from Cephalon, Inc. This gold award honors outstanding achievement and service to the communication profession, specifically in the Web Site Overall category.  In addition, ESP also won an honorable mention in the Podcast category.

ESP is a robust and multi-faceted educational and communications initiative designed to address the most critical issues for pain management practitioners. The ESP program provides clinician guidance for the implementation of good practice management techniques, emphasizing favorable interaction with regulatory and law enforcement agencies, as well as effective assessment, monitoring and documentation strategies; all of which contribute to the overall goal of improving the quality of clinical care for patients suffering excruciating pain.

The heart of ESP is its website, www.EmergingSolutionsinPain.com, a community hub consisting of various accredited educational activities and a source of up-to-date news and information. ESP also exhibits at many of the primary pain and addiction association congresses, and offers practitioners an opportunity to meet personally with leading national experts. ESP-associated continuing medical education symposia are frequently scheduled in tandem with major pain-related national and international meetings. Accredited educational monographs covering various pain and addiction topics are published quarterly. All initiatives are developed in conjunction with leading experts to ensure advancement, relevancy of the information, and timely delivery to support continual increase in the number of engaged health care professionals.

This year, more than 4,000 entries from around the world were entered for award consideration. Therefore, receiving the gold award is a tremendous achievement and deserved recognition for this truly dynamic initiative. To see a full list of award recipients, visit www.HermesAwards.com.
