NCCPA Addresses Self Assessment and Performance Improvement CME
“At its meeting last weekend, the NCCPA Board of Directors responded to concerns from PAs and to a new analysis regarding the availability of self-assessment and PI-CME activities and reached a decision to relax the self-assessment and PI-CME requirements introduced with the new 10-year certification maintenance process.
Effective immediately, self-assessment CME and PI-CME are no longer required. However, in recognition of the value of these very interactive types of CME, NCCPA will weight those types of CME more heavily, awarding extra credit for these now optional types of CME.”
“To encourage PAs to continue to pursue self-assessment activities, NCCPA will award 50% additional credit for all activities designated for self-assessment Category 1 CME credit (i.e., a self-assessment activity worth 10 credits will be converted to 15 credits by NCCPA). Also, the first 20 PI-CME credits logged during every two-year cycle will be doubled when logged with NCCPA.” – NCCPA
How Can CME4LIFE Help?
CME4LIFE is excited about the potential of the future of Self-Assessment and Performance Improvement CME. The NCCPA recognizes the importance of Self Assessment and Performance Improvement and is encouraging and incentivizing Physician Assistants to pursue credits in these CME categories. They are doing so by offering a bonus 50% credit to Self Assessment (making a 10 credit activity a 15 credit) and doubling the first 20 credits of Performance Improvement credit (making our 20 credit project worth 40) in a 2 year cycle.
Under these new guidelines if you were to order our combo Self Assessment Package, NCCPA would recognize that as 30 CME credits and our PI CME would be recognized as 40 credits! Even more exciting is the areas of practice that we address. You can complete our Self Assessment in Primary Care, Acute Care, Orthopedics and coming soon Cardiology. We also have 2 Performance Improvements addressing Patient Satisfaction and Medical Malpractice.
