discontinued reviews of training events and the practice of providing corresponding
CM approval numbers. A Diplomate will no longer need a CM approval number from ABIH
to list an event on their CM worksheet. Most DSH courses will continue to fulfill
certification maintenance requirements, but individual students must calculate the
hours based on course content and time in accordance with ABIH rules. For further
explanation, contact ABIH or view the explanation.
