AAFP Updates CME Search, Reporter Functions for Members

AAFP News (10/11/19)

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has updated its continuing medical education (CME) Search and CME Reporter resources, with the goal of making it easier for members to find products and activities that fulfill their specific requirements. The updated CME Search function offers a broader list of AAFP-certified CME available, and members can refine searches by inputting a single element such as a topic or location, or a mix of elements like topic and activity format. Initial search results also can be narrowed according to activity format, CME provider type, number of available CME credits, location, and calendar date range for live activities. CME Search also includes an option to search for and select activities that meet American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) self-assessment activity or performance improvement activity mandates, in addition to activities that comply with the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Opioid Analgesic Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients With Pain. Updates to CME Reporter include automatic labeling of activities that meet the same ABFM and FDA requirements in the reporting system and on members' transcripts. "This new functionality will support additional reporting requirements/needs that members may have with organizations outside the AAFP, reinforcing the benefit of utilizing AAFP as a one-stop shop for reporting and tracking CME, state licensure and professional requirements," says AAFP's Stacy Wymer.
