Track 1 – Define the Terms ABPN and MOC – provide links to ABPN and MOC page at ABPN  ABPN –The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc. (ABPN) is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to serving the public interest and the professions of psychiatry and neurology by promoting excellence in practice through certification and maintenance of certification processes. The ABPN is a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties, an organization of 24 approved medical specialty boards. For more about the ABPN, go to http://www.abpn.com/what_is_abpn.html. MOC – Maintenance of Certification - The ABPN Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program reflects the Board’s commitment to lifelong learning throughout one’s profession. The mission of the ABPN's Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program is to advance the clinical practice of psychiatry and neurology by promoting the highest evidence-based guidelines and standards to ensure excellence in all areas of care and practice improvement. http://www.abpn.com/moc.html

Track 2 – More on MOC and Maintenance of Licensure (MOL)   Description of MOC can be found at this article: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMhpr1211043 Maintenance of Licensure (MOL) is a framework for medical license renewal that recognizes the value of continuous professional development, including practice-relevant continuing medical education, and supports a physician's commitment to lifelong learning and contributes to improved health care. The system is being developed by the nation’s state medical boards in response to recent trends and changes in our health care system, including a growing focus on enhancement of patient safety, the measurement of quality outcomes, and improvements to systems and process. For more on MOL, go to http://www.fsmb.org/mol.html

Track 3 – Define the term ABPN “Folio”  ABPN Physician Folio offers a single source for information pertinent to a physician at all the various stages of a relationship with the ABPN - from resident through seasoned diplomate engaged in MOC. Likewise, ABPN Physician Folios provides a dynamic conduit for important data exchange such as making updates to personal contact information, updating medical license information, and applying and paying for an examination. For more on ABPN folios, go here: https://application.abpn.com/webclient/landing_page.asp

Track 4 - How to set up my ABPN Folio – PREZI or Infograph   To set up your folio, go to https://application.abpn.com/webclient/folios.aspx To view a dynamic presentation walking you through the process of setting up an ABPN Folio, click here

Track 5 – Define the term Performance in Practice (PIP)  A Performance-in-Practice (PIP) is a two-part quality improvement program designed for "clinically-active" physicians to participate in practice improvement activities over the 10-year MOC cycle by both chart review and second-party external review. Diplomates will be required to complete three (3) PIP Units, each consisting of both a Clinical Module (chart review) and a Feedback Module (Patient/Peer* second-party external review). For more on PIPs, go to http://www.abpn.com/moc_10yrmoc.html

Track 6 - Define the term Self-Assessment (SA) CME credit

Diplomates of the ABPN are required to participate in at least two major broad-based self-assessment activities during the 10-year MOC cycle. The self-assessment activities can come from multiple self-assessment programs. Each self-assessment activity must cover new knowledge and/or current best practices in one or more of the competency areas, and provide feedback to the diplomate that can be used as the basis for focused CME, lifelong learning, and/or career development. That feedback must include the correct answer and recommended literature resources for each question, and (by 2014) comparative performance to peers. This requirement began in 2010 for those applying for 2011 MOC examinations. Diplomates should average 8 SA CME credits per year (averaged over 2-5 years). For more, go to: http://www.abpn.com/moc_10yrmoc.html

Track 7 - Define the term CME credit and AMA PRA Category 1 CME credit™  Diplomates of the ABPN are required to complete an average of 30 specialty or subspecialty Category 1 CME credits (for example: AMA PRA Category 1 CME credit™ or AAFP CME credit) per year over the 10-year MOC cycle. CME activities must be issued by an ACCME accredited provider or by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and CME must be relevant to the specialty in which the diplomate is certified. Diplomates certified in more than one area only need to accrue an average of 30 CME credits per year, as the same CME credits can be used to satisfy the MOC requirements for multiple specialties and subspecialties. Diplomates must accrue 300 Category 1 CME credits over the 10-year MOC cycle and those CME credits must be collected as 150 credits for the first 5 years, and 150 for the second five years). For more, go to: http://www.abpn.com/moc_10yrmoc.html

Track 9 – Now that you know what a PIP is, here is a way for you to get involved (AHRQ grant – link to Annual Meeting registration, where people can sign up for PIP workshop)  Now that you know what a PIP is, do you need to complete a PIP?

Click here to listen to recorded webinar on MOC Click here to view the slides for the recorded webinar on MOC Track 19 – CALL FOR FAQs – ask people to submit Do you have questions regarding Maintenance of Certification, its processes or where you stand with MOC? Please submit them to CMECPD@aaap.org Track 20 – begin listing First FAQs on MOC

FAQ 1: Can those undergoing recertification in more than one specialty (for example: recertification in General
Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry) use the same MOC and continuing medical education activity credits for both/all recertification?

Answer: Credits for activities that are approved by ABPN can be used for multiple certifications. You need only
complete the MOC requirements once and can use those credits toward all of your recertification requirements for all specialties in which you intend to remain certified. Track 21 – Second FAQ on MOC

FAQ 2:

I know I need to complete Self-Assessment CMEs (at least 8 per year) within the mix of AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ for MOC (300 CME hours over a 10 year cycle or approximately 30 CME yearly). Do they need to be ABPN approved? And how can I obtain these specific Self-Assessment CME?

Answer: Self-Assessment and Performance in Practice requirements are completed by participating in ABPN
approved MOC products. Please note this term “ABPN-approved products”. This is important because there may be CME providers who will charge you to participate in a CME activity that you may learn were not ABPN approved and cannot be used for MOC. Please confirm that an activity can be used toward your MOC certification before you begin to participate in it. To see a list of these products, click here. Also, each year, AAAP plans to offer a Self-Assessment Examination as a free service to members attending the annual meeting, so you might want to consider becoming an AAAP member (to become a member, click here) and attending the annual meeting each year to obtain these required credits. Track 22 – Third FAQ on MOC

FAQ 3: How do I complete approved Performance in Practice (PIP) activities? Answer: Go to the ABPN website http://abpn.com/moc_10yrmoc.html to view approved activities. For a list of ABPN
approved products, click here. This will take you to the list of approved ABPN products. Select from these and complete 3 over the 10 year cycle (when fully phased in; for those recertifying prior to full phase-in in 2017, check the Phase In Schedule on the ABPN website to determine what you must complete to sit for a recertification examination).Currently there are only 3 PIP modules directed to substance abuse education, but AAAP is in the process of developing more activities for PIP that will be ABPN approved. This column will cover such activities and other CME activities in development in future issues of the AAAP newsletter. Track 23 – Fourth FAQ on MOC

Track 24 – Guest column – have a faculty write a column on this: INTRODUCE BLOGS Share Dr.Lofwall’s PIP Newsletter article here. (needs revisions before posting) Track 25 – Fifth question on MOC

FAQ 5: How does the Clinically Inactive diplomate meet MOC requirements? Answer: Clinically Inactive psychiatrists wishing to recertify must complete MOC activities, but will not complete Part
4 (PIP) of MOC requirements. They will be listed by ABPN when all other MOC activities are completed as “Recertified, Not Clinically Active” or for those who see only a few patients (Recertified, Not Clinically Active Enough to Complete MOC Part 4”. If patient care activities are to resume, there will be a series of PIP MOC activities to be determined by ABPN that must be completed before the certification status will be changed to clinically active. Individual states may at some point have requirements regarding activities approved under a medical license for those “Clinically Inactive” or “Not Clinically Active Enough to Complete MOC Part 4”. These have not been defined as yet and individuals would need to check with their own states for more information on this question.

Track 26 – Sixth question on MOC

FAQ 6: How is documentation kept regarding Peer and Patient Feedback? Answer: Feedback from 5 peers and 5 patients must be obtained twice during a 10 year cycle for recertification.
ABPN provides forms to be given to patients and peers (Peers do not have to be physicians) for feedback. You should keep these in your personal records and simply record in your Folio when this activity is completed. Enter the information into your Folio as follows for the example of a Peer Evaluation (same for Patient Evaluation, but change Activity Title to Patient Evaluation Survey): Activity Title for a colleague evaluation:  Peer Evaluation Survey Sponsor name  ABPN  No names of patients or peers are entered into Folios  5 patient & 5 peer surveys are collected; then recollected within 2 years from same 5 patient and peer or different 5 patient and peers Track 27/begin tracks again…..
