Continuum Audio self-assessment and CME activities for eligible interviews.
Participants must be a Continuum subscriber or have purchased a back issue to earn self-assessment and CME(SA-CME) credit. Institutional access does not include individual CME. To earn credits, complete the activities in one of three ways:
- Go to
continpub.com/CME and complete the test online (available to subscribers only)
- Read through the questions in the issue and mark your answers on the tally sheet included in the issue before entering them online at
ContinuumCME@aan.com for online access if you are a nonsubscriber who has a single issue; however, we encourage all subscribers to use the online system.
All participants are required to complete the evaluation at the end of each activity. You will not be able to claim credits without completing the evaluation.
The AAN has a minimum performance pass rate of 60 percent in order to comply with the AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ requirements. Participants can retake the test if they do not pass the first time.
Preferred responses, including a peer comparison report, will be provided upon completion of the activity. You may print out a summary report of all questions, preferred responses, your responses, and peer comparison data.
