ASNC’s educational programming is at the core of the society’s mission to provide optimal nuclear cardiology services. The organization offers a variety of courses including interactive web-based activities for CME and CE credit that are designed to increase learners’ competence in the field of nuclear cardiology. These online activities include Meetings on Demand that present digital recordings of live meetings providing on-demand access to some of ASNC’s most popular courses, Journal CME/CE articles, and Self Assessment Modules (SAMs) that allow you to measure your knowledge in nuclear cardiology, and Webinars.
With the end of the year quickly approaching, here are the activities that will expire in December of 2016 and January 2017:
CME: Applying Appropriate Use Criteria in Clinical Practice: Lessons in Choosing Wisely
This is an online case review roundtable activity that highlights the importance of discussion of appropriate use criteria with referring physicians, reinforces the role of clinical judgment and proposes strategies to reduce the number of rarely appropriate studies. Physicians and technologists will gain a better understanding of the value of myocardial perfusion imaging and the role other imaging modalities have for selected patients. The activity offers .5 CME/CE credits and the expiration date is December 3, 2016.
CME: Enhancing Your Nuclear Cardiology Practice Video Series
These are four individual activities addressing best practices in four nuclear cardiology topics. The format for each activity is audio/video synchronized with slides presenting interactive case studies and case challenge questions and expert vignettes. Physicians and technologists will learn about the most current and best practices in nuclear cardiac imaging. Each individual activity is free to members; non-members pay a fee of $50 each.
