Virtual KSA: Diabetes
Sunday, December 12, 2021 @ 5:30pm – 9:30pm ET
$125 MDAFP members
The Maryland Academy of Family Physicians, in partnership with the Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin chapters of the American Academy of Family Physicians, is excited to announce a virtual, American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM)-endorsed Family Medicine Certification knowledge self-assessment (KSA) group study focused on diabetes. Set for Sunday, December 12, beginning at 5:30 p.m. EST (typically takes 4 hours for completion) this program is limited to the first 25 members who register.
This innovative program will use a robust web-based system that will allow family physician learners from across the country the opportunity to complete the KSA while engaging their peers and an expert content leader from a location of their choosing.
This virtual learning session offers an innovative method for delivering a KSA nationwide to a large group of physician learners at the same time.
Completion of this KSA will provide participants with 10 certification points towards their ABFM certification requirement. In addition, this activity has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 8 live Prescribed continuing medical education credits by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Please note the topic for the December 12 virtual KSA has been changed to Diabetes. We planned to offer the Care of Women KSA for the first time ever, as it is a new topic being developed by the ABFM. Unfortunately, that KSA module may not be ready as originally planned. We apologize for any inconvenience.
At the session, attendees will work together to complete the Knowledge Self-Assessment of the topic content area. Upon passing the assessment, you will receive 10 ABFM Certification Points and 8 live, prescribed CME Credits.
Attendees will discuss and complete the 60 questions that make up the Knowledge-Self Assessment. The answers from the group session will be reported directly to the ABFM on your behalf. The Clinical Self-Assessment is now optional and may be completed on your own for an additional 5 ABFM Certification Points and 4 CME Credits. (This was previously required under the old SAM format.)
Application for live continuing medical education (CME) credit has been filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Determination of credit is pending.
How Does it Work:
The day of, participants will use an online polling system to work through KSA questions with our content expert. Our main goal is to pass the assessment, with an expert speaker offering assistance when questions arise. First, questions will be displayed giving participants approximately 30 seconds to respond (time varies based on speed of participant response). Next, results will be displayed and discussed. Finally, answers will be submitted as a group and individuals will be credited for completion of the knowledge self-assessment, once evaluations have been submitted.
To Participate You Will Need:
To participate, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop) with a reliable high-speed internet connection, and a completed registration. You will also need a telephone and/or speaker capabilities, but a microphone is NOT needed, as all lines will be muted.
Before registering for the KSA session, please check your ABFM record to see which modules you have completed within the past three years. Visit the MC-FP section of the ABFM website for more information or call (877) 223-7437.
