Learning Objectives and Assignment of Credit

After working though each module, participants in this activity should be able to demonstrate an increase in, or affirmation of, their knowledge of clinical medicine. Participants should be able to evaluate the appropriateness of the clinical information as it applies to the provision of patient care. Detailed knowledge learning objectives for each module are provided as required reading at the start of each learning module and may optionally be reviewed collectively on the Objectives page.

While participation in these learning activities is free, CME credit and MOC points are exclusively available to ACP members. To earn CME credit and MOC points, ACP members must participate in a learning activity and successfully past the post module examination. To earn CME credit and MOC points for the Care Consequences learning game activity, ACP members must complete the learning game and deliver a satisfactory outcome for the patient.
