ACCREDITATION COUNCIL FOR CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION


The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 45.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

 


MOC STATEMENT


Successful completion of this CME activity enables the participant to earn up to 45.50 MOC points and 2.50 patient safety credits in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.  It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC points.

 


AMERICAN ACADEMY OF FAMILY PHYSICIANS


Application for CME credit has been filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Determination of credit is pending.

 


RISK MANAGEMENT


This activity meets the criteria of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine for 9.00 credits of Risk Management Study. This includes 4.50 credits of Opioid Education and Pain Management Training and 1.25 credits in End-of-Life Care Studies. Please check your individual state licensing board requirements before claiming these credits.

 


NURSE PRACTITIONERS and REGISTERED NURSES


For the purpose of recertification, the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board and American Nurses Credentialing Center accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ issued by organizations accredited by the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.

 


PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS


The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) states that AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ are acceptable for continuing medical education requirements for recertification. We would also suggest that learners check with their state licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for re-licensure.

 


CANADIAN ACCREDITATION


The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

 


EUROPEAN ACCREDITATION


Through an agreement between the American Medical Association and the European Union of Medical Specialists, physicians may convert AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to an equivalent number of European CME Credits® (ECMECs®). Information on the process of converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to ECMECs® can be found at: www.eaccme.eu.
