For the first time, NQF will offer CME credits for its 2017 Annual Conference, Accelerating the National Agenda for Quality Measurement and Value, April 4-5, in Pentagon City, VA. Physicians, nurses, and other health professionals may claim up to 2.00 AAFP Prescribed credits for attending sunrise sessions during the conference. In addition, NQF Members may claim credits at their convenience through two self-study programs: Attribution: Principles and Approaches and National Quality Partners Playbook: Antibiotic Stewardship in Acute Care. AAFP Prescribed credits are accepted by a variety of boards, including the American Board of Emergency Medicine, the American Board of Preventative Medicine, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. NQF plans to expand continuing education opportunities for eligible providers.
The NQF Journal Club brings together authors and thought leaders in the field of health economics and quality policy and focuses on important and relevant issues covered in recent issues of Health Affairs. Moderated by Helen Burstin, MD, MPH, NQF’s chief scientific officer, these webinars give members access to recently published articles, in-depth conversations with featured authors, and the opportunity to delve into some of the most significant trends and challenges affecting healthcare quality. The NQF Journal Club offers a unique blend of policy analysis and analytic discussion.
All contacts from NQF Member organizations are eligible to participate in the Journal Club and to claim CME credits at no charge.
