What is Performance Improvement (PI) CME?
The American Medical Association defines Performance Improvement CME activities as structured, long-term processes in which physicians:
- Learn about performance measures related to an aspect of their clinical practice
- Use measures to retrospectively assess their practice
- Implement a set of educational interventions designed for sustained improvement in patient care
- Track those measures prospectively
- Re-evaluate their performance
Your participation in this activity will allow you to not only impact your patients and clinical practice, but impact patients nationwide as you become a part of the ever-growing momentum for the positive change of immunization rates.
PROTECT's Performance Improvement CME activity is an innovative educational format that is technology-driven, self-directed, and user friendly. It provides a three-step structured program comprised of the following:
Stage A: Assess
Assess current practice using identified performance measures through a self-assessment survey and patient chart reviews
Stage B: Apply
Implement a set of educational interventions designed for sustained improvement in patient care
Stage C: Evaluate
Complete a follow-up self-assessment survey and additional patient chart reviews to reassess practice performance and compare to results previously reported in Stage A
The University of Nebraska Medical Center, Center for Continuing Education designates this PI-CME activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
