As a result of a $15,000 NNLM/PNR award, Legacy Health physicians and clinicians now have a new format for earning AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, searching knowledge-based Library resources to answer their clinical questions at the point-of-care. This project teamed the Legacy Health’s Medical Library staff and electronic knowledge based resources with the Continuing Medical Education (CME) staff, online resources, and Oregon Medical Association accreditation to collaboratively develop this new opportunity for physician education.
The target population for this project was the credentialed Medical Staff from our five Legacy Health hospitals, approximately 2300 physicians. Additional clinicians eligible to participate in this project were nurses, nurse midwives and residents. Physicians (MD/DOs) earn 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ per clinical search researched and documented, non-physicians are eligible to obtain a certificate of participation that translates into credit used by their professional organizations. During the 6 month period of performance, we worked with a variety of Legacy partners, – Supply Chain, Marketing, Information Services, and our Foundation. Another non-Legacy partner, Coordinator’s Choice™, the producer of the CME Tracker software used to document searches and credit, was another important partner in the implementation of this project.
