Your Board of Directors is pleased to keep you informed of the following developments and opportunities for our membership: view the November Presidential Letter.
Dear PES Member,
In an attempt to improve the quality of care and outcomes for children with endocrine disorders, and to meet members' needs, the PES Board has explored a number of possibilities over the past year, particularly those that could lead to credit for MOC requirements of the ABP. The PES Board has selected an exciting new platform called SCAMP® that will allow participation by every individual PES member to contribute to our collective knowledge, with the ultimate goal of improving the care of our patients.
A SCAMP® is a Standardized Clinical Assessment & Management Plan and is a means of guiding clinical assessment and management in order to learn more about conditions for which there is limited available evidence. Each SCAMP® is designed in a way that can lead to potential improvements in the quality and value of the care provided. Implementation over the next year of this initiative will enable us to join the ranks of the growing number of our peer specialty societies who have been able to spearhead and support inclusive clinical quality networks. We are among the first societies to implement the SCAMP® program.
We were pleased to share an initial overview of the SCAMPs program at the business meeting on Saturday, May 4th in Washington, DC. If you were unable to come to the meeting or would like to know more about how you can participate, we have attached a brochure and powerpoint presentation for your review. Please also be on the lookout for further announcements by email and information on the newly-revamped PES website.

The PES Board, with the help of a special COI task force, has carefully examined and revised the Society's approach to disclosing and managing potential COI. A basic premise is that the PES considers collaborative relationships with industry to be valuable to the mission of the Society, and is committed to manage these relationships responsibly and ethically. The PES is also pledged to leadership of the Society and its activities that is objective and unencumbered by conflicts of interest (COI).
Special thanks go out to members of the COI task force - Leona Cuttler, Scott Rivkees, Ericka Eugster, Paul Kaplowitz, and Wilma Rossi - for their expert and insightful work.
