ASA’s journal, Anesthesiology, offers a CME product linked to its articles. The Anesthesiology CME Editor chooses an article out of each month’s journal and writes thought-provoking questions (3-6 each month) associated with that article. The article, questions and learning objectives, with an explanation of the program, appear each month in the printed journal. By subscribing to the program and answering those questions via the Internet, the user can receive up to one hour of category 1 CME credit per issue.
All interactions (subscriptions, questions/answers and CME credit) will be completed via the Internet. All journal readers — members and nonmembers — are invited to participate in the program. A user may choose to sign up for a year’s subscription or for one issue at a time.
Subscribers have three years from the date of publication to complete the program and submit for CME credit (e.g., the January 2012 Journal CME will expire on January 31, 2015). The user must receive a score of 50 percent or greater to receive CME credit. If the user has not received a passing score after answering the questions, he or she is given the opportunity to retake the exam.
ASA is approved by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. ASA designates this educational activity for a maximum of one hour per issue of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
