New ACP PIER Point-of-Care CME Program

Here is another option for those of you who would like to get credit for looking up a medical topic while treating a patient.
Skyscape offers a similar service for a fee. SV

ACP Members can now earn 10 free AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ by using the new PIER Point-of-Care CME tool. You can access this tool by clicking on the "CME Diary" link in the upper right corner of any PIER page.

This CME program enables you to record your clinical questions in a "diary" and document the location of the answers to these questions in PIER. Before submitting your questions for credit, the PIER Point-of-Care CME tool also requests that you complete an evaluation form.

Each question you answer is worth 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Once you have completed 4 questions, you may submit them to earn 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. All entries must be submitted in sets of 4 questions.

After using your 10 free credits, you have the option of purchasing another 10 credits. Please note that AMA rules limit you to earning 20 credits per year through the PIER Point-of-Care CME program.
