Internet Point of Care (iPoC) - CME Activity

Activity title: Preventing Recurrent Stroke: Targets for Managing Risk – Internet Point of Care Learning

Valid dates: April 15, 2010 through April 15, 2011 (Accreditation Expired 4/15/2011) 

Target Audience: Neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists, primary care physicians and internists.

Activity Overview: In 2006 the American Medical Association (AMA) introduced guidelines for accrediting physician learning activities that are structured, self-directed and answer clinically relevant questions. Learning for Internet Point of Care 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 Point of Care (iPoC) activity will enable physicians to document easily the elements of their self-directed learning, and earn CME credits.

Sponsor: Jointly sponsored by Medical Education Resources and the National Stroke Association
