SNM Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment program modules approved by ABNM, ABR for CME credit

SNM's Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment Program modules, which allow molecular imaging/nuclear medicine professionals to demonstrate competence--and accountability--to patients, colleagues, managed care companies and government regulators, have gained the approval of the American Board of Nuclear Medicine and the American Board of Radiology.

"Informed consumers want assurances that health care providers deliver high-quality care that is based on the most recent medical knowledge, technology and skill," noted SNM President Peter S. Conti, M.D., Ph.D. "Our online program modules are now approved for self-assessment credit to satisfy the maintenance of certification requirements for physician diplomates to take either the ABNM or the ABR recertification exam," he said. "SNM's peer-reviewed LLSAP program allows molecular imaging/nuclear medicine health care practitioners to assess their medical knowledge and competency in patient care, in systems-based practice, and in practice-based learning and improvement," added Conti, a professor of radiology, clinical pharmacy and biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

ABNM and ABR have approved six modules for self-assessment credit: Hematologic Malignancies, Gastrointestinal Malignancies, Solitary Pulmonary Nodules and Lung Cancer, Melanoma-Sarcoma-Neuroendocrine Malignancies, Image Artifacts and Normal Variants in PET and PET/CT for Oncological Applications and Breast and Gynecologic Cancers.

"ABNM certifies that SNM's self-assessment modules fulfill maintenance of certification requirements. Our diplomates will benefit from greatly expanded SNM educational offerings," said Henry D. Royal, M.D., ABNM executive director. "ABNM requires self-assessment as a part of lifelong learning. The emphasis will be on active participation in a continuous quality improvement program," he added.

Over the year, the SNM LLSAP program will offer numerous Web-based self-
