Resources for Continuing Professional Development
To incentivize multidisciplinary engagement, the Office of Professional Education at National Jewish Health made it possible for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists to earn continuing education credits for their participation.
Physicians could earn 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for participation in the performance improvement continuing medical education (PI CME) initiative, and 20 maintenance of certification (MOC) Part IV points from the American Board of Internal Medicine. Nurses could earn nursing continuing education units (CEUs). Pharmacists could earn continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit for attending a live education session about MR. MAs could receive certificates of participation for attending live trainings and completing the online MR modules.
Of the 89 adult medicine physicians who participated, 39 claimed CME credit and 17 claimed American Board of Internal Medicine maintenance of certification (MOC) credit. Fifty-six RNs received nursing contact hours and 49 MAs obtained participation certificates for completing all of their online educational modules. Two of 5 pharmacists attending a live MR education session were eligible to claim CPE credit.
