Yes! ACDIS awards CCDS/CCDS-O CEUs to authors published in two of our publications.
First, contributors can submit articles for publication in the CDI Journal, ACDIS’ bimonthly members-only publication. Contributors published in the Journal receive 0.5 CEUs per 350 published words and articles tend to be around the 750-1,500 word mark. Each Journal edition is centered on a theme and contributors are welcome to use that theme as a jumping off point for their articles, but we always like to include some clinical and coding topics as well. All the topics and deadlines are posted in our Publications FAQ section.
Secondly, ACDIS CDI Leadership Council members can submit articles for publication in the CDI Leadership Insider (CLI), the Council-specific publication that goes out the second Monday of the month. The articles in the CLI tend to be 750-1,000 words long and contributors receive 0.5 CEUs per 350 published words. The topics are chosen by the contributor, though if contributors would like help, they can email Associate Editorial Director, Publications & Membership, Linnea Archibald (email@example.com) for assistance. The remaining 2021 Council term deadlines are as follows:
- May 10, 2021 edition
- Deadline: April 28, 2021
- June 14, 2021 edition
- Deadline: May 31, 2021
- July 12, 2021 edition
- Deadline: June 28, 2021
- August 9, 2021 edition
- Deadeline: July 26, 2021
And finally, while ACDIS accepts contributor articles for the ACDIS Blog, they are not awarded CEUs. These articles tend to be a bit shorter and less formal, running about 500-700 words. Articles submitted for publication on the Blog are reviewed on a rolling basis and offer new authors a “training ground” in a less formal setting.
