How to Earn Credit
The APA's PIP modules are guided practice improvement programs created for psychiatrists, and are designed to meet Part 4 MOC requirements for clinical modules. Modules follow a three-stage Performance Improvement CME structure that takes place within a 24-month period. ABPN Maintenance of Certification requirements: http://www.abpn.com/moc.html
In STAGE A - Chart Review, the physician compares his or her current practice (through a review of chart documentation) to guidelines and measures provided for the topic area. No patient/chart data is submitted. (5 credits)
In STAGE B – Improvement, based upon the results of chart review, the physician then selects an area where improvement is needed and documents his or her strategy for improvement. This improvement plan is for the personal use of the physician, and is not submitted to the APA. Educational resources are suggested that can assist with the improvement plan, however, any educational activities relevant to the improvement plan can be used. During Stage B, the physician implements the educational plan for a period of 30 days or as long as the doctor deems necessary within 24 months. (5 credits)
In STAGE C – Second Chart Review, the physician reassesses his or her performance with review of 5 patient charts, and determines the results of his or her performance improvement effort. These can be the same 5 patients or a new group of patients seen since beginning the PIP activities. Again, the physician retains all patient/chart data. (10 credits) The complete module, three stages in sequence within 24 months, earns the participant a total of 20 CME credits.
