Activity Title:
Acute Stroke Treatment: Addressing Missed Opportunities—Internet Point of Care Enduring Activity

Valid Dates: Feb. 20, 2013 through Feb. 20, 2014
(Accreditation for this activity has expired)

Target Audience: Neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists and other physicians who treat stroke patients

Activity Overview: In 2006, the American Medical Association introduced guidelines for accrediting physician learning activities that are structured, self-directed and answer clinically relevant questions. Learning for Internet Point of Care (IPoC) activities is driven by a reflective process in which physicians document their clinical question, the sources they consult and how the topic applies to their practice. This Internet PoC activity will enable physicians to easily document the elements of their self-directed learning and earn CME credits.

Sponsor: Jointly sponsored by Medical Education Resources (MER) and National Stroke Association. Contact MER at info@cmepartner.org or Valerie Siebert-Thomas at vsiebert-thomas@stroke.org.

Physician Accreditation:
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of Medical Education Resources and National Stroke Association.  MER is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing Medical education for physicians.
