PI-CME Activities

 

AES offers performance improvement (PI-CME) activities through which you can earn 20 valuable CME credits. These are self-directed, online activities designed to help evaluate the delivery of care in a clinical setting.


Each activity is comprised of three stages:

  • Stage A. Perform chart reviews, evaluate and reflect on the results of the chart audit, and identify areas for improvement
  • Stage B. Based on results of Stage A, develop and implement a plan to optimize the delivery of patient care
  • Stage C. Evaluate the impact of your plan and perform a second chart review for patients seen after plan implementation

In-Patient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Performance Improvement: Ictal and Post-Ictal Awareness and Localization Testing in Focal Seizures (2024)

$99 for AES members | $199 for non-members

Enduring material, earn 20.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, ABPN-approved for Continuing Certification

Some essential information about seizures and characteristics of an individual's epilepsy can only be obtained in the moments during and after a seizure. Due to substantial variation in ictal and post-ictal examinations across and within epilepsy monitoring units, this information can often be missed or poorly documented. A standardized ictal and post-ictal examination protocol in the epilepsy monitoring unit allows providers to maximize the acquisition of information during admission. 

This performance improvement project will give clinicians the resources necessary to create and implement a standardized ictal and post-ictal examination protocol for focal seizures that includes all exam features required by NAEC accreditation criteria, provide training on appropriate seizure exam goals and techniques, and understand the utility of specific exam items in highlighting specific clinical information.

Outpatient Clinic: Screening for Quality of Life in Patients with Epilepsy (2023)

$99 for AES members | $199 for non-members

Enduring material, earn 20.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, ABPN-approved for Continuing Certification

Epilepsy can profoundly impact a person’s quality of life due to physical, social, and psychological consequences. Quality of life is partly dependent on seizure frequency, but is also impacted by other factors, such as overall health status, intellectual and physical functioning, side effects from antiseizure medications, and social factors like employment and marital status.

Screening for quality of life should occur at every outpatient appointment. This performance improvement activity details why screening for quality of life is important, helps learners increase knowledge on validated quality of life screening tools available for the epilepsy patient population, and assists the learner in creating interventions to improve baseline of screening using quality improvement methodologies.

Complimentary PI-CME Activities

Prepregnancy Counseling for People of Childbearing Potential with Epilepsy (2021)
Enduring material, earn 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, ABPN-approved for Continuing Certification

All individuals of childbearing potential with a diagnosis of epilepsy, excluding those who have been diagnosed with menopause or are surgically sterile, are at risk for bearing children with birth defects as a result of low folic acid.

Patients and/or caregivers should be counseled at least once per year about how epilepsy and its treatment may affect contraception or pregnancy.

This patient care assessment activity aims to inform care providers on how to counsel and treat patients of childbearing potential with epilepsy.
